Registration has been given for Pregnancy Advice Salisbury (PAS) to allow it to be fully operational and open for business.
PAS is a Christian service aimed at supporting women and their families through crisis pregnancy. It was formally opened by Dr Joel Beeke and his wife Mary Beeke in the city of Salisbury in September 2013. Its director is Dr John Magee who is a GP in Salisbury. More information on the services offered can be found on the website.
PAS rents premises in the Elim Centre in Salisbury, where it has a consultation room and ultrasound scanning facilities. PAS is staffed by volunteers, including the director, the ultrasound sonographer, and a team who answer the telephone and meet clients. The service offered has been restricted during the past three years during the protracted process of obtaining registration by the Care Quality Commission.
Now that registration has been obtained, the service is fully operational and open for business. PAS promotes a distinctly Christian view of life and childbirth which equally values the interests of mothers and their children.
To date PAS has helped more than 50 clients from various parts of the UK. The purpose of the service is to support women through difficult decisions and circumstances, and to signpost clients to other support services. The service is operated by the charity Foundation for Life (Salisbury) and relies on voluntary donations to fund its work. If you wish to donate or find out more, email [email protected]
Please pray for the effective publicising of the service and for those volunteers who support clients.
