1994 – Aftercare and Resettlement services born

We recognised that the support we were giving to women and children in our refuges was not enough, we needed to support them to move into their own homes, giving them the life skills they needed to manage a tenancy and live the lives they chose for themselves.  Women needed people they could trust to help them live their lives after refuge, help to furnish their homes, fill in forms, apply for benefits etc., and so our Aftercare and Resettlement services were born.  Now called Community Services with access to Therapeutic and Wellbeing support as well as specialist Group Work, we support upwards of 70 women and families a year to move on from refuge and to access our help when living in their own homes across the county.
