Women’s Information Service Shopfront closure update

While we understand the closure of the WIS Shopfront is frustrating for people, we are being guided by Government advice and recommendations and will not reopen until we can provide a safe space for our staff and members of the public. For those that have visited us in the past you will understand that the size and layout of the Shopfront presents several challenges in regard to social distancing. We are investigating some options to make the Shopfront a safer space when we do reopen and will advise of any changes via our website and Facebook page. Our phone lines remain open and we can also be contacted via SMS, email and Facebook.

Thank you for your patience and understanding throughout this challenging time.
