We have started out OUT REACH sessions, and our Disability Hate Crime reporting point.
If any disabled person has been a victim of hate crime and donot want to go to the police station, they can come to the WDF and we will take all the information and pass it on to the police. We offer a 24/7 phone number that people can either ring to repot a crime. or if they just need to talk.
If they need further help we will sign post them to the right place and people that can help. We will support them all the way.
Our Out Reach sessions are now in Newbiggin By The Sea at the Arts Forum, next meeting in November, and at the Stakeford and Bomarsund welfare center. These will be held the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month. The parish council are funding our venue there and are supporting the WDF and the work we do.David Nicholson the parish clerk has not only been a great help but most of all the support we have had from David has been endless.
You can go on the WDF web site where you can find what we are doing and when. Please come along for a cuppa and a chat and get to know our team, we look forward to helping where we can
