Ascent – Moving Forward Group
The Moving Forward Group is an 6-8-week educational programme for women over 16 who have experienced any form of domestic and/or sexual violence. The programme provides a safe space for women to share with each other and explore the following topics:
- Safety and self-care
- The value of you and creating healthy relationships
- Awareness and dynamics of abuse
- Self-esteem and confidence building
- Managing anxiety and stress
- Being mindful of your emotions
- Life after violence
- Moving on and moving forward
To refer women to the groups, please complete the attached referral form and return to: firstname.lastname@example.org so that we have ample time to book women on to the groups. Our admin team will contact women directly with details once their referral has been reviewed.
If you work with a women's group and would like us to deliver the Moving Forward programme in-house, please contact us to discuss this further.
