Gender specific service is suitable for women aged 16 and over who may be affected or experiencing adverse poverty and/or who would benefit from early intervention, support and guidance. Women can self-refer or be referred via various statutory and voluntary agencies and services. Criteria for referral: women who have support needs in respect to parenting, likely to result in an adverse impact on their children; women at risk of entering the criminal justice system; women who are pregnant and due to give birth or at risk of losing the care of their child. If a woman does not fit the criteria, but would benefit from this type of support, services can contact the project direct to discuss their secondary criteria.

Further Information:

The Project is a locally developed inhouse project designed to support women including expectant mothers. The aims of the project are to help build the women’ confidence and self-esteem, address any inequalities and disadvantages they, their children and young people might be experiencing to improve their opportunities and achieve success. Support their attendance at medical appointments to improve their overall wellbeing and those of their children/unborn child. Provide individual and group activities that offer practical and emotional support to help keep themselves, their children and/young people safe and protected from harm. Families in Angus benefit from the items made by the women e.g., ‘bonding squares’ for parents of new-born babies in the SCBU, which are also donated to local charities.
