Support for Internet Explorer

It looks like you’re using Microsoft Internet Explorer as your web browser. This is now considered ‘end-of-life’, and Microsoft is withdrawing support for it because it uses outdated technology. This means that it will no longer receive important security updates and previous bugs will not be fixed.

This means that the risk and cost are placed on service providers to develop twice for modern browsers and again for Internet Explorer. As free, modern alternatives are available for most platforms it is difficult to justify spending public money on further development.

Please see the Withdrawal of support for Internet Explorer notice from NHS Digital for more information and guidance.

Provide domestic abuse support for families and children including childcare, information and support for families who have suffered, or are at risk of suffering from, domestic abuse or a crisis situation.

Ways We Can Help

We help families who need further support by finding and signposting them to correct services, so they can recover and reengage in society.

Coffee mornings

  • Each week we offer a drop-in coffee morning for anyone who has suffered from domestic abuse or a crisis situation.
  • Every Wednesday at 10am during school term times, the group meet and talk about whatever it is they need support with.
  • The sessions are in an open, safe and informal environment where everyone feels they are able to share their problems and feelings with each other, and offer support if they can.
  • If you would like to attend our coffee mornings you don’t need to book, just turn up.


  • We often run courses at Centre 56 for parents who want to learn new skills and improve their confidence and self-esteem.
  • For more information about our courses, visit
