Nacro SWITCH (Supporting Women in the Community and Home)

Every year, Nacro SWITCH helps hundreds of vulnerable women overcome traumatic lives and move on to a brighter future. Help us to stop this life-saving service closing. Please donate today.

How we help women

Nacro SWITCH provides vital support to disadvantaged and vulnerable women within the Tees Valley area. We help women aged 16 and older with a range of health, social, financial, educational or housing needs to regain positive control of their lives.

At Nacro SWITCH, women find they can build confidence and self-esteem to address issues that hold them back, such as social isolation, domestic violence, and drug and alcohol abuse. We can then help them get into education, training or work. Our team work one-to-one and in groups, also offering training and wellbeing workshops. Additionally, we run a very successful mentoring programme in the community. This helps our women to pair with trained volunteers who have experience of handling the issues they face.
