We promote the mental health and wellbeing of all women, not only in Chorley, but in surrounding areas too. We provide a listening ear either on a one-to-one for more personal issues or we have a communal area where ladies can chat amongst themselves and discuss many topics from childcare to different coping skills, share ideas, engage in the centre activities or just to seek help or advise others on many issues or just sit and have a coffee or tea and a natter. The centre offers numerous weekly, monthly, and daily activities. We offer a variety of informal and formal courses on different subjects when available. We offer relaxation sessions, colouring books, relaxing music, knit and natter sessions, crafty chat afternoons once a month, as well as free Yoga, healing, and massage sessions. We offer a secure, confidential environment where confidentiality and privacy are always respected. If we cant help, we will always find someone who can!
