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.
