The Firgrove Centre has been open since 1987 and offers a safe place for women and/or their partners to talk. Our trained advisors aim to provide a listening ear, unbiased information, counselling and on-going support, enabling them to work through thoughts and feelings in order to face the future with hope.

We also have a comprehensive schools' programme called ‘Choices’, visiting many of the local schools and colleges as part of the PSHE curriculum. Lessons include crisis pregnancy and abortion, sexually transmitted infections, and relationships.
