Our Current Projects.
We are currently working on a number of community projects within the centre. Some are hosted in-person at the centre and others are being presented virtually. If you are interested in any of the projects below then please do get in touch with Tracey at the Annexe for further information.
The Freedom Programme Delivered online
Contact staff for details
This is a domestic violence programme designed for women., Research shows that the vast majority of cases of serious abuse are male on female. The Programme examines the roles played by attitudes and beliefs on the actions of abusive men and the responses of victims and survivors. The aim is to help them make sense of and understand what has happened to them, instead of the whole experience just feeling like a horrible mess. The Programme also describes in detail how children are affected by being exposed to this kind of abuse and very importantly how their lives are improved when the abuse is removed
Wellbeing Sessions delivered by KidsAid
New sessions begin Thursday 5th January 2023.
These sessions are delivered in the Thursday Stay and Play. We focus on mental health and well-being through activities that are fun for all of the family.
We can also arrange follow-up individual sessions with KidsAid where there is an identified need.

An 8-week programme is for parents or carers of children aged 0 to 5 years old. It is free to join. Everyone wants the best for their children, but with so much conflicting advice it can be hard to know what to do for the best as a parent, especially in the early years.
