A continued lack of funding brought Safe Woman, Safe Family (SWSF) to an end with the organization’s closure in December last year.

Still wanting a space in the community for women to connect with others and get help, the core group of SWSF employees created a support group.

The Heartspace Women’s Support Group kicked off on February 9 at the Pinjarra Community Garden.

After SWSF closed, one of the owners, Tanya Langford, said the goal was to always provide a safe and supportive space for women.

“We’re all so passionate and know that this support is always needed, so it didn’t feel right for me not to offer help,” Ms Langford said.

“It’s about making sure that with all our hearts we still want to have a place for women to connect.

“This is an opportunity for women to come together to access connections, support, self-care therapies, specific assistance/mentoring, and most importantly, to feel valued.”

The group offers yoga, meditation, gardening, counselling, drumming and weekly therapy options.

Enjoy a cup of tea, a shared lunch and conversations in the beautiful garden.

It’s a gold coin giveaway for anyone who wants to come and the ladies bring something for a shared lunch.

The group runs every Wednesday from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Lot 362 Pinjarra-Williams Road.
