The Government has issued advice, urging us all to do what we can to minimise unnecessary contact with others during the Coronavirus pandemic.

We, along with our colleagues across the charity sector, are responding quickly to the emerging situation, and putting measures in place to try and keep disruption to a minimum.

We all have a responsibility to do what we can to ensure our own safety, and the safety of other people. For us here at Woman’s Trust, this means we have had to change the way we work.

Our staff are now working remotely – there may be some delay in responding to calls and emails during this time, please bear with us.

We are in the process of  working with all of our clients to rearrange our face to face counselling sessions and move to phone appointments, where possible. We know this is not an ideal solution, but we are committed to making sure vulnerable women still have access to the mental health support they need during this critical time.

For the time being, group therapy sessions are suspended, for public health reasons. We will continue to monitor the situation and consider possible alternative arrangements.

Given current constraints, we are unable to accept any new referrals for counselling, support groups, and self-development workshops at this time, but we are keeping this under review.

In the meantime, if you need help or advice please call the National Domestic Abuse Helpline on 0808 2000 247. The line remains open and support is available 24/7.

Our colleagues at Women’s Aid also offer an online chat service, which you can access here:

As ever, in an emergency, please call 999.

Thank you for your understanding.
