The Freedom Programme
Even before the pandemic as a church we had planned to expand our help to the vulnerable who are caught up in domestic violence. The Freedom course dovetails well with our existing ministries of foodbank, furniture project, mental health support and foodbank. As an extension to this course, we are hoping to offer something similar to our local comprehensive schools.
Awareness Raising Course for Women, delivering a rolling 12 week course 12:30 pm to 2 : 30.pm, every Thursday.
Those wishing to attend must be booked onto the course by speaking with Jacqui, our Certified trained facilitator on 07309 858955. Clients may self refer, alternatively other support agencies can make the referral on their clients behalf.
