SERVICE UPDATE: Supporting women during Covid-19

As we enter another national lockdown, Anawim is committed to continuing to support women in and around Birmingham.

Our Drop-in service, helpline and live chat will all run as usual, with Covid-19 safety measures put in place for women attending Drop-in. We ask that all women accessing this service wear a face covering unless you are exempt.

Drop-in will run Monday to Friday, 10am-2pm at our Basall Heath centre. Although our Washwood Heath Drop-in service is closed at the moment, it will be re-opening soon with times to be confirmed.

Anawim’s helpline is open on 0800 019 8818, Monday to Friday, 10am-6pm. Women can also access our live chat by clicking on the orange button in the corner of the screen. If you contact the live chat outside of the hours 10am-6pm, Monday to Friday, one of our specialist female caseworkers will get back to you as soon as possible.

If you or someone you know needs support with mental health, finances, housing, families and relationships or anything else, please do reach out. Our services are also open for any women who feels she may be experiencing abuse. Remember that abuse isn’t always physical. All of our services are open to anyone who identifies as a woman.

If you are feeling worried, anxious or just a little down and not sure where to turn, anyone can contact Living Well Consortium on 0121 663 1217 to speak with a trained therapist who can also signpost to relevant services.
