This summer we have started work on our serenity garden made possible through funding from Karbon Homes, and help from Stanley Town Council who placed beautiful hanging baskets all around our centre and the entrance into the garden.
With the help of our fantastic volunteers, we set about transforming our garden space into a positive project which will help to promote good health and wellbeing.
The aim is to produce fruit, edible flowers and herbs that could be used in our Tea Room, as well as providing a relaxing and therapeutic space everyone can enjoy.
We also have a purpose-built all-weather summerhouse where we will be running craft workshops, group work and inviting alternative therapists in to conduct reiki, aromatherapy, and life coaching sessions. We also have retreat days to help women and young girls unwind. This tranquil space will be a restful oasis which will aid mental, physical, spiritual and emotional wellness.
That’s What People
Say About Our
"The Just for Women Centre has done more for me than anyone from other organisation. Linda, all the staff and all their counsellors have helped me with my PTSD and depression. I have got my self-confidence and self-esteem back due to going on the courses that they have put me on and their counsellors who help me to cope with my depression and PTSD. If the Just for Women Centre was to close I would never be able to cope with myself, or know where to go to do the things that the Just for Women do help like people like myself."
"When I came to the centre I had bad anxiety and depression. I knew nobody but I was made to feel welcome. I have been coming for a few years now and have learnt so much. I have done different crafts and have done lots of courses and gained qualifications. love coming here it has been a life saver for me. I have made good friends and I am a lot more confident, coming here is the best thing I have done."
"Before I came to this group I didn't have any confidence to talk to many people and I rarely went out to places with my friends. I have learnt about how to keep myself safe and not to be held back by my mental health."
