New Dawn New Day has worked to enable women to change their lives for the better for over 30 years.
Through our work we know that women and girls affected by poverty, trauma and abuse have the potential to transform their lives. We support them by providing a safe environment and high quality, gender-responsive, trauma-informed support.
We set up Leicester Women’s Counselling Centre in 2015 to offer an affordable private counselling service to women and girls in the local community. We receive no funding for this work and the service is supported financially through client fees, room hire charges and training income we receive.
Counselling has been a core aspect of our services to women and girls for many years. the women we work with often present with complex needs and we deliver specialist counselling services for women who have experienced domestic violence, women who have been involved in the criminal justice system and women who have children who are involved in safeguarding services. Referral to these services is currently through Domestic Violence Services, Social care, the Police and Probation.
