Our caseworkers provide one-to-one, person-centered holistic emotional and practical support.
Casework is offered both before and alongside counselling, however the women must be aiming to access counselling at some point. Casework is usually short-term work to overcome barriers that prevent women from accessing counselling.
The support can cover a wide range of emotional and practical support needs, such as:
- understanding healthy relationships
- building coping strategies
- establishing healthy boundaries
- building resilience and self-esteem
- understanding personal safety
- understanding the impacts of abuse.
Practically, we can advocate for and support women and girls in meetings with other agencies, for example social care, housing or GPs. We’re also able to offer support with organising food parcels, and linking clients with groups to promote independence and address issues around isolation. The focus of the work aims to empower women and girls to help them make informed positive choices in moving forwards with their lives.
