IMPORTANT NOTICE- AS AT 25th MARCH
At My Sisters Place, we are keeping a close eye on events and as I am sure you can appreciate this is a constantly evolving picture.
In light of the recent Government update ( Monday 23rd March) announcing ’lockdown’, My Sisters Place has closed to all face to face visitors and employees. It is important that we uphold this so as to help reduce the spread of Coronavirus.
We are still here- albeit remotely- and we want to ensure that we are able to continue to offer services. As of Wednesday 25th March all of our staff are at work, remotely, and providing support to women affected by domestic abuse in our area. We are contactable on phone, email and via Facebook messaging.
This means our drop in service is suspended until further notice.
IF YOU ARE IN DANGER- PLEASE CALL 999 AND ASK FOR THE POLICE.
Please contact our Main Reception on 01642 241864 for further guidance if required or our Counselling Service on 01642 256036 for counselling queries.
For support, women can use one of the following methods:
You can also email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Or contact us via Facebook messaging at https://www.facebook.com/mspmbr/
Please refer to our website and social media pages for the latest updates as the situation is changing quickly.

We are in close contact with our partners and stakeholders and will update on social media and email where appropriate.
Our work does not stop and we are still supporting, advising and advocating for our women and their families. To this end, and especially as we are expecting fundraising events to be adversely affected in the months ahead, we urge you to still consider supporting us as our income requirements remain the same- in fact women who are already vulnerable and isolated face even more difficult times.
We are asking that people do NOT drop donations in at this time and until further notice. If you would like to donate, please consider an online donation via Virgin Money Giving https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/charity-web/charity/finalCharityHomepage.action?charityId=1006754
Our community is brilliant. Please keep looking out for each other and remember that isolation due to illness or the current recommendations may be very difficult for women affected by abuse.
Thank you for your support, thanks for helping a small charity make a big difference.
