Our Experience shows us that women who have had experiences of violence need comprehensive, holistic support in order to recover fully. This means assisting women with every aspect of their experience, including access to housing, counselling, education and employment opportunities, parenting skills, confidence building and legal assistance or support, among other things. Each of our projects works in this way.
How inclusive can help you
We can offer you counselling, sign post you to relevant agencies such as housing advice, employment for support and chance to learn new skills.
