Please help us help women, and make a donation.
Thousands of women have attended WHISC in the last few years many in desperation. Last year we provided 645 ‘Listening Ear’ sessions, a no-appointment-needed service for women in distress.
We gave information or support to over 5,000 women. Our Drop-in is the hub of all our services. From that, women can be referred for counselling, join free exercise classes, or sign up for health courses.
We work closely with other agencies, and make sure that women are referred for the help they need, whether that be a Domestic Abuse, service, Citizens’ Advice or refugee agencies. What’s more, during drop-in hours, any woman can come in and have a cup of tea and a chat.
It’s vital that WHISC continues this important work. Please help us help women, and make a donation.
