Women's services

Petrus offers an accessible women-only space through our Hub project based in Rochdale.  

We support women in contact with the criminal justice system, those at risk of offending or becoming a victim and any woman who requires a support intervention.  

It is a safe space, free of judgment and cost. 

Health and Wellbeing

We have also partnered with the Homeless Alliance Response Team to provide onsite nurses and healthcare at our Hub, located at 73 Great George St, Rochdale OL16 1QG.  

Drop ins and appointments can be accessed Tuesday – Thursday between 9am and 4pm.  

Supported Accommodation

In addition to our day service activity, Petrus also has multiple women only supported accommodation across Rochdale and Oldham. Our safe and friendly homes allow women with experience of multiple and complex needs to build the skills, resilience, and confidence to live independently in the community.
