Low cost counselling is now available to women with dependent children in Wellsford and surrounding areas, thanks to a new service from Rodney Women’s Centre.
The resident counsellor will be Sarah Mitchell and six sessions will be available in the town, in addition to the centre’s existing Warkworth service.
The centre, based in Morpeth Street, is also offering a new literacy and numeracy course for women who speak English as a second language. There are free lunchtime lectures every Wednesday, in addition to the centres usual range of courses and workshops on topics such as computer skills, career development, art, crafts, self-defence and personal development. Plus there is a free young mums’, support group.
There is now a brand new playground in the centre’s back garden for women and children to enjoy, thanks to funds raised at the centre’s biannual art exhibition last October and Springboard Trust, which has provided fencing.
