Every woman I have met through Rahab has been friendly, generous and has taught me something, I have seen how it helps build confidence and self-belief. Through Rahab I have met new people and encountered different perspectives. Labels affect how we perceive people, particularly those we’ve never met. Volunteering challenges such preconceptions and helps us to grow more human.

Our response to COVID-19

During the coronavirus crisis our priority is to continue to support the women while making sure that we all stay safe and protected during what are difficult and challenging times for so many people.

We are taking on new referrals and in regular contact with the women to address their concerns and evolving needs as the situation progresses. We are also working with colleagues to improve the broader response and access to support.

Given the health risks we are presently unable to offer face to face meetings, but will return to a full service when the emergency level is lifted. You can meanwhile contact us in the usual way and we will do our best to help.
