Aspire Learning, Support and Wellbeing

Aspire: who are we?

Aspire is an award-winning not-for-profit organisation based in Chester-le-Street, Co. Durham. We deliver high-quality learning, support and wellbeing services at our women-only centre and to mixed audiences in communities and organisations across the North East of England.

Our women-only centre is a welcoming and friendly place to learn, socialise and gain confidence.

At our Chester-le-Street centre we offer the following:

• Free and low cost courses with start dates throughout the year.
• Friendly support groups and services always ready to welcome new faces.
• Opportunities for you and your family to improve your health and wellbeing.
• An on-site crèche to help with childcare while you learn or get support.

Our staff are experienced in delivering bespoke learning and training to mixed audiences across a wide range of sectors and organisations.

Listening Service

If you’re feeling worried, upset, stressed or anxious about something, we’re here to listen. The confidential listening service is for all women 18+.

 

Health & Wellbeing

We support individuals and groups in the community to address their health and wellbeing in order to lead to happier and healthier lives.

 

Personal Development

We offer a comprehensive range of learning and training opportunities for women in the heart of our community. Aspire also offers training to other sectors, organisations and groups.

 

Support

Aspire staff have a wealth of experience responding to the support needs of local women. We run several support groups including Mature Friends and our weekly Drop-In Group for those wanting to meet and make new friends.

 

Volunteering

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, develop your skills and boost your confidence while making a difference to the lives of other women.

Our on-site crèche is available for children under 5 and offers free places while you learn or get support at Aspire.
