COVID-19 update on our services

 

The Women’s Centre Cornwall is still here for you….

We would like to assure you that we are doing everything we can to continue to support women and girls during these unprecedented and unpredictable times.

We know that things can feel very uncertain at the moment and that plans are changing on a daily basis. This can be very unsettling, but we want you to know that we are still here for you.

Providing support to survivors of abuse continues to be our main priority.

We are offering support over the phone, via secure email and via on confidential, on-line counselling rooms.

We will of course be continually following advice and guidelines and will seek to resume safe face to face contact as soon as possible.

Open Project

 

Open Community Justice Work 

Open CJW is delivered by The Women's Centre Cornwall across Dorset, Devon & Cornwall. The service recognises the role of trauma in offending behaviour and provides one-to-one, responsive support to women who have been convicted of an offence. We offer a safe and confidential space for women to explore any issues she feels are necessary in her journey towards a life free from offending. 

 

Open Partner Link Work 

Open PLW is delivered by The Women's Centre Cornwall across Dorset, Devon & Cornwall. The service offers emotional and practical support to women whose male partners or ex-partners are participating in the Building Better Relationships programme following domestic abuse. 

Both sides of the Open Service are currently offering phone support only with face to face sessions where needed.
