About the service

Nacro’s SWITCH (Supporting Women in the Community and Home) is a service which works to reduce the number of looked after children in Wolverhampton. We do this by supporting vulnerable women who are at risk of being separated from their children, as well as helping those women experiencing grief, loss and anger following a separation.

The programme offers:

  • A safe, supportive environment
  • Flexible hours
  • Outreach in the community and home

About the service

We offer support to women via our befriending service. By building trust, providing a consistent relationship and offering practical and emotional support, we develop meaningful relationships which result in engagement with other services.

We work closely with social care, courts, sexual health, maternity services and GPS to identify women who are pregnant and vulnerable to losing their child. Outreach work takes place both in the community and in women’s homes.

Who is the service for?

SWITCH is for women of all ages for whom, should they get pregnant, there could be potential safeguarding issues for the child. We accept referrals from any stakeholder.
