The Carpenters Arms

Women’s Centre - Flaxley House

After several years of planning and preparation The Carpenter’s Arms now has a centre to accommodate and help women seeking recovery from addiction.

After several years of planning and preparation The Carpenter’s Arms now has a centre to accommodate and help women seeking recovery from addiction.

This large home that we have called Flaxley House is situated in Loughborough. It can accommodate 12 women each in their own bedroom and with shared bathrooms. There is communal dining, a lounge, a laundry, and an enclosed garden area.

Initially both Phase 1 and Phase 2 will run in the same building. We envisage a separate Phase 3 house will be needed within the year.

This base incorporates the ethos and principles that has made our male residential programme successful however there are distinct differences that will allow the programme work more effectively for the ladies:

The Women’s centre is staffed entirely by women 24/7.

In order to protect the confidentiality and anonymity of the residents the location will be known by only those staff actively involved onsite.

Safeguarding is of paramount importance.

Upon arrival a risk assessment will be done in order to provide the best possible help to each individual as they travel the path of recovery.
