Women's Centred Approach:
The service provided by Stockport Women's Centre is for women only. We believe that women need access to services within a women-only safe space. We recognise that women’s needs are different to men’s and service needs to be delivered which is women-centric and designed in such a way as to provide the best opportunity for positive outcomes for women.
Stockport Women's Centre has developed a trauma-informed approach to its work. This approach is grounded in an understanding of, and responsiveness to, the impact of trauma. It emphasises physical, psychological and emotional safety and creates an opportunity for women to build a sense of control and empowerment.
