Description

We are an independent organisation run by volunteers, who are dedicated to supporting women of all ages and regardless of circumstances. Our volunteers are warm, friendly, approachable, and fully trained in supportive listening and can provide information on many topics. For over 30 years Chorley women’s Centre has been supporting and helping women find solutions to their problems, so that they can feel empowered to help themselves. 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!

Families struggling with post-natal depression, early childhood development, isolation, challenging behaviour, physical and mental health problems, bereavement and many other issues receive the support of a volunteer who will spend around three hours a week in a family’s home supporting them in the ways they need.

Home-Start Central Lancashire also provides up to date training for volunteers and parents, supports families practically and emotionally to increase their capacity to cope with and enjoy life events such as Christmas and school holidays, and helps families to access and engage with other agencies and support.
