The Women’s Centre Cornwall has been in Bude for over 5 years, permanently based at Neetside Community Centre.
From Bude, volunteers offer 1:1 support, group work and body work to women and girls who have experienced any form of sexual violence/abuse or domestic abuse.
Alongside these services, they run a daily helpline and have a number of other projects currently running from Bude including the Young Women’s Empowerment Project, the Open project working with women in the CJS and the Building Better Opportunities Project.
As well as staff working out of Bude they have also trained 21 community-based volunteer support workers who have undergone their 14-week accredited training programme.
There is a Christmas Decoration Workshop on 7th December at Bude Methodist church. Last year, it was a great success with over 40 people coming together to enjoy a Christmassy afternoon of decoration making, guided by local crafters who gave their time.
This year, there are plans for mosaic craft, hand sewn, hand painted, glass bead craft and willow wreath making. So there will be lots of opportunity for even the least crafty to make some gorgeous decorations.
