Charity of the Week

Just for Women Centre Stanley

Communications Officer

Just for Women Centre Stanley received a grant of £700 from DUCK's Allocation Fund last year. The funding went towards a counselling service. 

'We are seeing a major increase in historic, sexual and physical abuse cases, these are some of the most serious and damaging to both men and women in our society. The impact can be devastating and traumatic, physically for the rest of lives. We at the centre support these women from the disclosure to after the court case if they bring the perpetrator to justice. In some cases there is no-one to account for crime as the person/persons have deceased. So whatever the women’s situation is we give her emotional support and counselling for her to live a better life and to help to get closure.

When the women initially attend the centre they feel so isolated and alone. We have cases where women have told no-one they have been sexually abused as a child, lived their lives in secret, which has caused in some cases severe mental health problems.

We help to look at ways for the women to ease some of their more complex needs with counselling/support, one to one and then we engage when women are ready to go into group work.'
