Sessions will be informal and aim to build participants confidence and self- esteem. We will also provide information about useful services and give advice if required.

We have specialist advisors who deliver this course and they can help show women that they can live a life free from abuse and violence.

The course covers the effects on individuals, children and women themselves and provides the tools to consider what they may need to do.  It will enable women to gain knowledge and skills, which will help them to make informed choices so that they can protect themselves and their children. 

Please note all those attending the course will need to agree to clear ground rules to ensure all discussions are kept confidential.

The Halo Hope Programme is free, confidential and delivered in a safe and comfortable environment.
