Ways We Can Help

For the time being, we're not running our adult support services such as coffee mornings and courses but are maintaining regular contact with all families throughout this period.

Centre 56 offers different ways to help families to recover and move on.

Whether you have experienced domestic abuse or a crisis, Centre 56 can help.

We have highly experienced and qualified staff who understand the needs of people who have suffered domestic abuse or a crisis situation.

We help families who need further support by finding and signposting them to correct services, so they can recover and reengage in society.

Coffee mornings

Each week we offer a drop-in coffee morning for anyone who has suffered from domestic abuse or a crisis situation.

Every Wednesday at 10am during school term times, the group meet and talk about whatever it is they need support with.

The sessions are in an open, safe and informal environment where everyone feels they are able to share their problems and feelings with each other, and offer support if they can.

If you would like to attend our coffee mornings you don’t need to book, just turn up.

We often run courses at Centre 56 for parents who want to learn new skills and improve their confidence and self-esteem.

The courses we offer have been suggested by parents themselves. We want to help everyone to feel better about themselves and support them on their journey to recovery and independence.

For more information about our courses, visit our Facebook page or Get in touch.

We have previously ran the following courses and look forward to reintroducing them:

Yoga and mindfulness

Feel Good Fridays is where you can enjoy some relaxing time, learn new techniques to unwind and destress, have fun and make new friends.

Healthy Eating Cookery

We often hold free healthy eating cookery sessions where you can learn how to cook and eat healthily on a budget.
