Our motto is: ‘women helping women helping women’.
Refuge workers will be available most weekdays to offer emotional and practical support. For example you may want to speak to someone about your feelings, or need some help with a difficult letter or phone call. They’ll go through all the paperwork with you including housing benefit to pay the rent in refuge and let you know how everything works. They’ll also help you arrange things with your old home.
They’ll let you know about local events and leisure classes, where the nurseries and schools are etc. There’s also a weekly meeting which all the women and staff attend. This is to make sure no one misses out on what’s happening and a has chance to catch up with the others in refuge.
