Thanks to our kindness and generosisty we have reached and passed our target.
Thanks to you we will continue to support our clients going through desperately difficult times.
2020 has been a strange and hard year for so many people. I have seen extreme acts of kindness many times. I think that being locked down gave so many of us time to think about others and the struggles they may have and we all had some extra time to do something about it.
Please look out for future projects we have as always your support would be amazing.
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and here is hoping that 2021 is a good one.
During Covid-19 we have been able to run a Freedom Programme using Zoom, This was a first for us but the clients who attended still seemed to gain from it. The facilitator felt that it worked well and even group work was still able to take place.
The programme is designed to teach women about the different types of abuse and help them to recognise early warning signs when they enter a new relationship.
Our staff have worked hard to ensure our clients feel supported during a time when face to face meetings have stopped. Face time and Zoom have helped virtual meetings to still take place.
The need for the Freedom programme is growing daily as the need for our services increases.
We also run group programmes in both of our safe houses, peer to peer support can be vital as this breaks the common myth that the abuse was somehow the fault of the victim.
Some people come on the programme and they may recognise some of the abuse they have suffered. The programmes goes through all of the different sorts of abuse there are and many women find out that they have been victims of more than one kind of abuse and not seen other behaviours as further abuse.
Please share details of our project with your contacts as we really do need the help and support.
