Women’s Support Circle is a space for women who have experienced family abuse. It is a 12-week programme that allows women of different cultures to sit in circle and safely share their stories and support a healing journey in the process. Our weekly contact will consist of nine on-line two-hour zoom calls and three face to face sessions which allows the women to intermingle and have that physical interaction with the group.

Throughout the program women will be encouraged and coached on life issues that support their well-being and their children’s well-being. When women come together in a safe space, they experience a sense of belonging within a community that enhances their lives and their children’s lives.

Key circle outcomes

  • To help rebuild lives, give encouragement, strengthen futures, support and to help challenge childhood messages. Encouraging change in their stories will uncover new pathways for their families.
  • For women to believe in themselves and believe that they can make life changing decisions that benefits and enhances their lives.
  • Women become more resilient, gain self-belief, have the courage to speak up and make a difference in their family and community.
