The Farr Centre is a women’s only resource centre that aims to provide a safe and welcoming space where women can empower themselves, make new friends and learn new skills. We provide help and signposting with any issues that may be affecting you as a woman, from drug and alcohol issues, welfare rights and legal advice, lack of confidence and self esteem, help with budgeting and other lifeskills such as basic IT skills, CV writing and making healthy lifestyle choices.

We also have a lot of fun activities for you to try out and this term some of our staff have passed on their skills to other women in areas such as Yoga, Jewellery making, Relaxation, Book folding, Relaxation, Easter crafts & Beauty on a Budget.

We encourage women from all walks of life to call in on us for a cuppa and a chat and find out what we do and how we can support you to be the very best you can be.

“When women truly support one another, amazing things occur and life can be pretty amazing!”
