My Sisters' House

OUR ETHOS

We aim to support a population of vulnerable women who are characterised by a range of issues including histories of physical , emotional and sexual abuse, drug and alcohol addiction, trauma, and mental health problems.

We also support women who may be having a difficult time at one point in their lives – a recent loss such as bereavement, suffering poverty from unemployment, relationship breakdown, a victim of crime, accident or illness/disability.

We offer practical, emotional, and therapeutic support to clients in tailor-made interventions that aim to address a range of underlying issues.

Women value our safe, women-only space and the set of supportive relationships with workers and peers they are able to build here. It integrates the best features of personalisation - supporting women to get their lives back on track; yet it works through collective action - using a mixture of peer support, volunteering and professional support.

 

"We want to treat women as a whole, to address all the social harms they face rather than focusing on single issues, and build on their strengths and capabilities"
