The Nelson Trust Women’s Centre offers a trauma informed, gender responsive safe space where women can come and get the support they need. We see a woman within the context of her life. We offer holistic support asking her about her health needs, housing, relationships, whether she has children, what her financial situation is like, what her life experiences have been and what her dreams and aspirations are.

We operate as a one stop shop, working in partnership with local specialist organisations and we invite specialist partners in to deliver support and drop ins such as probation officers, sexual health clinics and GPs and Nurses.

All women accessing support are allocated a dedicated keyworker who will work closely with them through their journey of support. This may include one to one and group interventions.

Within the Centre, women have access to food, toiletries, showers, washing facilities and much more. We also have a creche on site which is free to use as we know childcare is a huge barrier for women accessing services.
