A virtual Healthy Hub has been launched in Watford to help people suffering from domestic abuse.
Due to COVID-19, Watford’s Healthy Hub launched the service virtually on May 1.
The first service is being run in partnership with Watford Women’s Centre and provides women with support in relation to domestic abuse, which has become more prominent during the pandemic.
The hub will also introduce a new mental health support service which will be run in partnership with the national mental health charity MIND.
Once the lockdown period is over, the Healthy Hub will be located in the Town Hall. People will be able to make appointments or drop in to access advice, support and signposting.
Mayor of Watford Peter Taylor said: “We are all spending more time at home for the foreseeable future. Our mental health is just as important as our physical health.
“I’m pleased that we are able to offer the healthy hubs service virtually to really help those residents who need access to this during the current situation.”
The service is available Monday to Friday, from 9.30am to 3.30pm.
If you want to get in touch you can contact the domestic abuse caseworker Martha on 07999772123 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
