Wonderful WAVE DV Centre

Wonderful WAVE DV Centre

2013 has been a landmark year for the Freedom Programme. 
We are delighted that we have developed a close working relationship with WAVE DV Centre in Wigan. We have been able to fund their helpline and to hand the facilitator training in Lancashire to Christine Ashton. This will provide them with more much needed funding. 
Here is more information about this  wonderful charity.
Mission Statement
W.A.V.E's mission is to provide safe shelter and support services for women and children who have been subjected to domestic abuse. W.A.V.E Domestic Abuse Centre is a vital resource providing confidential assistance including emergency safety services such as refuge and 24 hour crisis helplines. But you don't have to stay in the refuge to get help from the centre. W.A.V.E. provides a full range of non-refuge related services.

The staff on all our projects have accurate information about domestic abuse and are experienced in providing assistance. They understand the family court and social security systems and are familiar with other community resources that might be useful to you.
