Outreach Support

Level 3

Community Support

Support is available for ex-residents and other women in the local area, this may be during times of transition such as moving house. Additionally, during all activities, we seek to support people and provide a sense of community for each person.

Drop-in groups we offer

Members of the community and current residents are invited to take part in a range of drop-in activities throughout the week. These are informal and friendly spaces where each person who comes finds support and friendship.

Projects are run in partnership with High Peak Community Arts, led by GNFC staff and external specialist art therapists.

Specialist art therapists guide and train through the whole process from planning to production.

Trips, Outings and Events

Where: Different locations around the UK

We also arrange days out, especially in the summer! We have been to places like Chatsworth and Blackpool. During the year there are celebrations and events such as open days which all support by us, and our supporters (like you) attend.

The group participants are also consulted about the planning and development of GNFC Services.
