Drop-in

Fact: The drop-in had over 1800 visits from the women in over the last year (2012-2013).

There are often opportunities for more in-depth conversation and practical support at our drop-in centre. The women can speak to a caseworker without appointment and gain expert advice and help from visiting professionals including doctors, addiction workers, etc. We are open four afternoons per week and provide a women-only space where they can eat a hot lunch, learn a skill, take part in therapeutic sessions or chat to staff or visitors. Others, who have nowhere safe to live, do laundry, pick up clothes from the second hand rail and use the shower facilities. Women can sign up with the drop-in caseworker, Tasha, to take part in the cook mentor scheme, learning nutrition, catering and food hygiene skills while cooking for the afternoon session. They can also enjoy creative activities, such as cushion-making or nail art, learning a life skill such as budgeting or IT or accessing college or community courses. The homely, relaxed atmosphere gives opportunities for the women to start making positive steps forward in their lives.

Drop-in is open Monday to Wednesday and Friday: 1-4pm.
Cook mentor scheme runs before each drop-in session: 10am-midday
