woman's trust domestic abuse mental health coronavirus covid-19 updateCORONAVIRUS UPDATE

Update April 2020: We are pleased to now be offering our group therapy sessions by video, for those that are able to participate.


The Government has urged us all to minimise unnecessary contact with others during the Coronavirus pandemic.

We are responding quickly to the emerging situation; putting measures in place to try and minimise disruption.

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’re 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 ideal, but we’re committed to ensuring that vulnerable women still have access to the mental health support they need during this critical time.

For now, we have suspended our group therapy sessions, 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. We are keeping this under review.
