Waterford Women’s Centre staff continue to work from home and are delighted to be able to continue to support and refer women to relevant supports and services when needed. Our facilitators are enjoying meeting groups on line as we explore new ways to keep linked-in and support each other as we stay in touch, stay home and stay safe. The women’s centre has always worked to remove barriers that stop women engaging at all levels in society. The current barriers are the social distancing regulations while we fight Covid 19 together. Although we never thought we would be removing these particular barriers through technical means as we are currently doing we are learning lots in the process.
We will take a break from online programmes for Easter from the end of this week and look forward to linking in again after the Easter break from week beginning 20th April. Please remember to stay home and stay safe. Enjoy Easter as we appreciate the simple things in life. We are in this together and will get through it together.
