Rivers LPC is a local, independent charity for women based in Crawley, West Sussex. Rivers LPC was officially formed in 2014, having existed since 2011 as a community group.
It exists to break down barriers women face when seeking help and support; women who may be excluded from mainstream support services and/or find it hard to engage with such services due to being economically, socially isolated; or are isolated due to health issues or language barriers.
Many local women miss out on vital support available in the community and have not been able to find assistance from other organisations, mainly because they are unaware of the existence of these organisations or there is mistrust due to cultural differences. Many of the women who Rivers LPC supports simply need help without the involvement of formal authorities, or statutory bodies.
We also work in close partnership with other voluntarily organisations, and welcome any offers to help us facilitate training or awareness courses and confidence building opportunities for women. Please contact us to discuss.
