A Message from the Women’s Centre Board of Trustees

Nottingham Women’s Centre Board of Trustees had its first ‘virtual’ meeting on Thursday night, with COVID-19 as the main item on the agenda. In the last few weeks, the world has turned upside down. We’re so very proud of our staff for the way that they responded to the challenges and for the way that they managed to close down the Centre physically, while keeping our service open to women.

The message that we want to send on behalf of the Centre is that ‘we’re still here for you’. Our staff are working hard behind the scenes to keep as much going as we can – keeping in touch with users via email and phone calls, and developing new ideas for taking our services into a virtual space.

A key part of our role is to support women to be heard by decision makers at a local, regional and national level. We really want to hear from women about how they are managing the current situation, both so that we can relay these messages to those who need to hear them, and also so that we can reshape our services to address new and changing needs. Please keep talking to us.

And please, please stay safe. Continue to follow government guidelines about staying home and ask for help if you need it. There is lots of support locally and the Centre will continue to share that information with you on our website, social media and through our newsletter. Nottingham Women’s Centre phone line is still open 10-2 each week day.

Building Closure: Update

It is with great sadness but determination to keep the nation as safe as possible, that we are closing Nottingham Women’s Centre for ALL face to face contact until government guidance tells us otherwise.

What does this mean for existing counselling clients? You can no longer come to see us for counselling, please be patient while we set up telephone/online counselling to support you. A member of staff will be in touch to arrange this with you.

Our phone lines continue to be open between 10am – 2pm for general enquiries and support: 0115 941 1475

Please keep an eye on our social media for updates and look after yourselves and each other. Click on the link to find support in your local area: https://www.togethertv.com/together-good-mutual-aid-covid19

We are thinking of you. Stay safe and stay at home.
