We are launching straight into 2018 with our first small but very important project supporting women who find themselves in a refuge as a result of physical or emotional abuse.
EVA Women’s Aid and Rape Crisis is a women’s only organisation supporting survivors of domestic abuse and sexual violence. They are independent of the criminal justice system, statutory agencies and other private companies. They are both Women’s Aid and Rape Crisis centres providing a range of free, confidential and non-judgemental specialist support services for women and children who have been affected by any form of domestic abuse and/or sexual violence at any time in their lives.
Their mission: To end the violence towards women, children and young people.
They offer various services including counselling, domestic abuse, drop in, independent domestic violence advocate, independent sexual violence advocate, information and guidance, supported housing, self-referral, surgeries and The Freedom Programme.
We are raising £450 to provide 15 sacks of items to help these women when they first arrive at the refuge. Each sack will include:
• Pyjamas or a nightshirt • Packs of knickers
• Deodorant • Toothbrushes
• Toothpaste • Moisturiser
• Hand Cream • Sanitary towels
• Tampons • Shampoo
• Conditioner • Shower gel
• Loo Rolls • Soap
• Tissues • Chocolate
The sacks will be delivered to EVA at the end of March and just before Easter 2018.
