Help at hand for women

Services provided by Women’s Aid in Wellingborough and East Northamptonshire were promoted at a recent community event.

Staff and volunteers from Women’s Aid held the community day at Wellingborough Homes’ Thompson Court offices on Friday, May 31, to raise awareness of the services which are provided by the organisation.

A spokesman for Women’s Aid said: “We’re here to raise awareness of what we do in Wellingborough and East Northamptonshire. We also run services in Kettering in Corby.

“We are promoting our refuge and services for children who have been through domestic abuse. We also provide support for victims of honour-based violence, including women who have been forced into marriage and as a result they have been beaten and kept as prisoners in their own homes.”
