Womens’ Aid

Today I was at Womens Aid. I wasn’t at the refuge. I was at the resource centre.

I got there at about ten to 11. I didn’t start until eleven. Again, I got plently of information.

I found out that it isn’t actually social workers who work there, but they do get referrals from social workers. Well I found out that they provide a place for women and children to go if they have been suffering from domestic violence. They run courses for both mothers and children. They aim to provide support for women, but want them to live independently and be able to get out of the violent relationship. They attend courte with women, provide community support for women in their own home, provide courses on how children can manage their feelings and not be a bully, and run courses for women suffering from low self esteme.

It was good. Again, I don’t know if I would like to work for this organisation.

Well it’s back to school on Monday. Wish i was going on work experience for 2 weeks!!!!! Cause it went in far too quickly!!!
