Our Safety, Health and Empowerment course takes place at the Venus Centre over six weekly sessions that address issues such as personal health and hygiene, sustaining a tenancy successfully, money management and healthy relationships. Participants develop skills to live independently and earn a goodie bag and a certificate to celebrate their achievement at the end of the course.
From Monday 29th July to Friday 2nd August 2013, Venus workers accompanied 70 mums and children to stay at the Haven Marton Mere holiday park near Blackpool.
Every Summer Venus raises funds for a residential so that families can spend some time together, women can access support from their workers in a friendly, informal setting, away from the barriers and problems they may be facing at home.
After several months of hard work and toil we are excited to launch the new Venus website. The new website not only has lots of information about who we are, what we do and the people we have helped, but also integrates to our new case management system so that you can submit your referrals online.
You can also now Donate to Venus directly through the website. Donations are a vital way of us improving our services in the community so please do consider us if your doing a sporting or charitable event.
