Immediate Need

The project operates a Drop in for women from noon until 6pm on Monday and Wednesday and noon until 9pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This provides a place for women to come and spend time in a safe, warm environment. The Drop In contains a relaxation area including sofas, chairs and a television. There is a fully equipped kitchen providing fresh home cooked meals and a dining table and chairs. Within the Drop In is a shower room and we ensure there are always supplies of toiletries, clean donated clothes and new underwear. There are washing machines and dryers which women can use to wash clothes and bed linen. We also are a member of Fareshare which enables us to distribute food parcels to our service users. The women are also able to access supplies of clean Injecting equipment and condoms, pregnancy testing kits and feminine hygiene products.
Additionally the project provides a secure environment for other services to offer services in a place and at a time appropriate to our service users. Specialist workers including drugs workers and health workers run regular evening sessions.
