Northampton Women's Centre
We create a safe place where women engage a variety of activities, support groups and give to access professional support in one place.
Service users have opportunities to learn and practice skills such as sewing and craft, gardening and healthy cooking. As well as life skills we run peer mentoring programmes that lead to volunteering opportunities and eventually employment.
It’s also provides a place to find holistic one-to-one support for issues from debt and domestic violence to homelessness and mental health. There are also hot desks for partners to work from, along with meeting spaces meaning that service users are able to meet their Wellbeing Coach, Probation Officer, Assistant Psychologist and other professionals all in one place.
A 5-week course that is an intimate, safe, supportive, closed group for women who have experienced any type of trauma in their lives. The course covers topics such as: What is trauma? The process of trauma, self-care, and healthy relationships.
Mondays 12pm - 2pm
Healthy Cooking on a Budget
Women can learn how to make healthy meals using simple recipes they can cook again at home. Where possible, we use seasonal vegetables and fruit grown in our allotment to make the dishes even tastier.
Tuesdays 12pm - 2pm
Participants make a complete item during each session, while learning useful skills and stitches to use at home.
The six-week rolling syllabus, complete with bespoke learning plans, means learners can join at any stage. The sessions support with overcoming language and social barriers, helping women reintegrate into society, and build a support network.
