One of the primary functions of Women’s Aid NEL is to provide a range of support services for people at risk from Domestic Abuse, providing a place of safety to support people from all backgrounds, ages and abilities.
The service is funded via a number of income streams, the biggest of which is income from Charity Shops, which accounts for around 35% of the overall income.
Women’s Aid also delivers Domestic Abuse Awareness and Training, through a series of ‘Domestic Abuse Workshops’, covering a range of associated subjects.
These workshops are delivered to professionals, partner agencies and businesses, among other organisation and last year alone we delivered 74 workshops to 1344 attendees, with 91% of those attendees who returned survey forms describing the training as ‘Excellent’.
We’re always looking to build relationships with local businesses and welcome any volunteer support through the ‘Corporate Volunteering’ scheme.
