Open Access Services

We offer a range of services that you can come along to from day one!

Please always check with a member of staff to ensure you have the up to date schedules for our services. Some of these services include:



Drop In

These are weekly group sessions at our Gateshead and Newcastle Centres. Informal sessions where you can come along for a cuppa and a chat! We encourage all women to attend drop in sessions as they are a fantastic way of keeping up to date with what’s happening as well as receiving support while you are waiting for a place in a support group or on a course.  



Creative & Therapeutic Activities
