Thank you to everyone who has supported our project so far, we have already raised a tremendous amount of money thanks to your kindness and generosity.
We are hoping to be able to run another project in the spring of 2020 so need more financial help if we are going to be able to do this.
We know from the children who have attended the programme with their Mum's what a tremendoue difference this can have to them. Their feeling that the abuse was not their fault and knowing that there was nothing they could have done to have stopped it makes them feel better.
Also, talking to their peers who have experienced similar circumstances helps them to not feel alone with their thoughts.
if you are able to help us further or encourage your friends and family to help we would be so very grateful.

We are just coming to the end of 2 programmes for women in the community.
These courses help the women learn to recognise the different types of abuse that they have experienced.
With this knowledge and information it can help women to spot early warning signs of potential abuse and allow them to make informed judgements and decisions.
These courses are vital to women in order to help them protect themselves and their children. Without this they may enter into other abusive relationships. This course helps them to break the cycle.
Thank you to everyone who has helped us to raise money to fund these courses.

Domestic Abuse Recovery Programme
By wendy denty - Project Leader
Thank you so much for supporting the vital work that we do both in refuge and in the community.
We are still trying to raise the necessary money to be able to run another programme for children and their Mum's in the community.
Each 12 week programme can only be for children of a very similar age so that they can talk to each other and that language is kept age appropriate.
To be able to help more children through their experience of Domestic Abuse would be fantastic. Comments we get from the children when they have finished the programme reinforces how important it is for them to be able to share their experiences.
Thank you again for your kind support, it really is appreciated.
