About Ayrshire Pregnancy Crisis CentreOffering caring, confidential support to the women of Ayrshire
Information for GP’s, Nurses, CPN’s, Social Workers, Teachers and other professionals Ayrshire Pregnancy Crisis Centre opened in February 2003 and we have had over 2,000 contacts, including 500 by secure broadband counselling. Our Trained Advisors have undergone 60 hours specialist training accredited by the ACC
and OCN (Open College Network), with a further 30 hours training for our post abortion team. We also have further on-going training and regular supervision. We are completely staffed by unpaid volunteers.
Our discreet, easily accessible Kilmarnock office is inside the Howard Centre in Kilmarnock. Call diversion is in operation.
There is no other specialist organisation in Ayrshire dedicated to giving women, girls, their partners and families in pregnancy crisis breathing space and time to carefully consider and make an informed decision. Half our work is dealing with post abortion clients. Our 10 session post abortion recovery programme successfully leads women (and men) through the thoughts and emotions some experience even years after a termination. It is tailored to the individual needs of the client.
Our free, confidential services have the potential to relieve busy GP’s, CPN’s, Community Pharmacist nurses etc. Further information about our pregnancy loss recovery programme can be found here. Download info about the programme.
*We are not able to refer directly for termination. We offer clients information on all the options and are well resourced to provide both immediate and long-term support as necessary, directing to other agencies as appropriate
