At sometime in most women’s lives situations arise which lead us to feel upset, distressed, confused, anxious or depressed.
These feelings may arise from a variety of reasons such as relationships, bereavement, illness, or it may be something that happened a while ago.
Freedom Programme (Domestic Abuse)
Our FREEDOM PROGRAMME is now running again in the Centre and sessions take place on a Tuesday, morning and afternoon. Please contact us on the Dedicated Domestic Abuse Helpline at Wigan Borough Domestic Abuse Service in partnership with DIAS, on 01942 311365 to discuss further or for more information and to be added to our programme waiting list. The FREEDOM PROGRAMME is aimed around women who have suffered or still suffering from an abusive relationship and aims to examine the roles played by attitudes and beliefs on the actions of abusive men and the responses of victims and survivors. Abuse comes in many forms and many relationships and our programme aim is to help the women to make sense of and understand what has happened to them, instead of the whole experience just feeling like a horrible mess. We aim to support and empower our women to make better life choices whilst keeping safe. The aim of the group is to ensure all women feel secure and can engage safely in open discuss where they feel able, whilst hearing from other women in similar situations.
