Watford Women’s Centre has announced that its premises on Market Street is now open to the public as it continues to deliver its life-changing services to the local community.
Although the centre was forced to close its doors back in March due to the lockdown, the dedicated staff have continued to work remotely to provide emotional, practical and educational support to women, but are now looking forward to bringing services back on site with a number of new safety measures in place.
A one-way system will be in operation, and class sizes are limited to six people. Visitors should bring a mask or face covering and are requested to use hand sanitiser on entry and exit.
As part of a phased reopening of services, the Centre will be offering one-to-one domestic abuse support. Some adult learning courses including English, Maths and ICT will also start to be taught on site, although some classes will continue to be delivered online via Zoom. and applying for a new role, a free careers service and job club are also available.
Fiona Miller, CEO of Watford Women’s Centre said: “We remain committed to supporting the wellbeing and mental health of everyone in our community while ensuring that safeguarding physical health is our first priority.
“Our staff are working exceptionally hard under difficult circumstances to continue to provide training, counselling and advice to those who need it.”
