Eyes Wide Open

This programme is designed to support women to identify abusive behaviours and the impact that these behaviours have on their lives.

It teaches women that abuse is intentional and ingrained in the belief system of the perpetrator. It explores the different tactics used and what the perpetrator intends to achieve from using these tactics. The programme looks at the values and beliefs of society, the perpetrator and women, it unpicks these views and supports women to challenge them.

Course start dates:

  • Accrington – Monday 13th November

Steps to Confidence

This group aims to give women the tools they need to make positive change within a safe and supportive space.

Help includes: • Building confidence and setting boundaries • Resilience & coping strategies • Communication skills • Goal setting & action planning • Money & energy saving tips
Course start dates:

  • Accrington – Tuesday 7th November

There are many more free courses available. You can find more here. Those who wish to take part in a course should fill in the  Online Referral Form and someone will be in touch.
