As the lead partner for the Ascent* Advice and Counselling strand, Solace Women’s Aid is proud to share some of the work we have accomplished in the first year of this project.
Leading a partnership of 14 organisations, we set-up and delivered a range of advice and counselling services across every London borough. Services are delivered in a range of languages, and two advice hubs are now up and running.
In the past year, with our partners, we have supported more than 10,000 new service users across London, providing more than 10,000 one-to-one counselling sessions and more than 1,000 group counselling sessions.
