Aspire Staff and volunteers have a wealth of experience responding to the support needs of local women.

We currently offer the following:

Support for older women - Mature friends is a support group for older women. The group meet weekly for friendship and conversation. We sometimes go on trips, invite speakers to the group or just have a chat and a catch up with each other. Very friendly, all women over 55 are welcome.

• Drop in group - A weekly support group for women of all ages looking to meet new people and make new friends. The group offers a first step into Aspire. By coming to our drop in you can find out what else is on offer.

• Emotional wellbeing group - A weekly support group for women in need of a little extra emotional support. If you are experiencing stress, low mood, depression or anxiety join us to gain coping strategies and build your self esteem. It’s friendly and informal, sometimes using crafts activities for relaxation and expression but you don’t have to be an artist! Give us a call to find out more.

Other Support Services (Under Development):

• One to one confidential listening service.
