Unfortunately at this time My Sisters Place is unable to facilitate wheelchair access and recognises the need for accessibility for all women who have experienced Domestic Violence or abuse. Therefore we are endeavouring to address this issue and are currently looking at a number of options to make our building more accessible and will be looking to secure more funding in addition to fundraising for building renovation work. Please refer to our news feed for updates regarding our progress.
