Being away from home can be daunting. Who do you trust? What do you do now? Will you be able to carve out an independent successful life for yourself?

We offer free impartial, confidential and culturally sensitive support, advice and information on key life skills and information on a range of issues including health, housing, employment, education, financial, and legal.

Our aim is to empower, educate and inspire women who want to learn more about the support and choices that are available to them. For support please contact us.

Get Involved

We are a volunteer led charity and we continue to grow but we cannot do this without your help.
