Empowering Change: Our Partnership with Women’s Aid
- 05 Dec 23
In a world where support and unity matter most, we’re proud to announce our partnership with Women’s Aid. This collaboration marks a new chapter in supporting survivors of domestic abuse. As Women’s Aid nears its 50th anniversary in 2024, we reflect on its profound impact since 1974.
Our alliance with Women’s Aid is more than just a partnership. It’s a commitment to strengthen the support network for survivors of domestic abuse. This joint effort brings together our legal expertise and Women’s Aid’s deep understanding of the challenges faced by survivors. Together, we aim to create a society where everyone feels safe and supported.
Women’s Aid: A Legacy of Support
Founded in 1974, Women’s Aid has been a lifeline for numerous women and children. Originally the National Women’s Aid Federation, it brought together nearly 40 refuge services. This was a groundbreaking move. For the first time, a national network was formed. It offered safety to those facing violence and fear at home.
Women’s Aid’s roots are in the women’s rights movement. They have always been a voice for those who needed it most. The organisation, run by women for abused women and their children, has been at the front of key achievements. They have raised legal protection for survivors. Further more, they have raised public understanding of abuse. They show how sexism in society can lessen or ignore such abuse.
Strengthening Support: Our Role in the Partnership
At the front of our partnership is our sponsorship of their Professional Services helpline. This helpline is a cornerstone of Women’s Aid’s support system. It offers important advice to professionals in various fields. These include healthcare, education, and social care. The helpline is a vital tool for those dealing with domestic abuse cases, especially regarding safe refuge spaces.
In addition to sponsoring the helpline, we’re also offering pro bono legal advice. This support adds to the existing strengths of Women’s Aid’s member services. Our legal team will work together with Women’s Aid, focusing on the complex legal aspects that survivors face. Our goal is to enhance the support network for survivors, giving full legal guidance and assistance.
This joint approach is key to our partnership with Women’s Aid. It allows us to extend our reach and impact, supporting those in the heart of the struggle against domestic abuse. Together, we’re not just offering aid; we’re empowering change.
The Professional Services Helpline: A Vital Resource
The Professional Services helpline, supported by our partnership, is crucial for professionals handling abuse cases. It serves a range of sectors, from housing and police to healthcare and education. The helpline provides specific resources and help, crucial for those without access to the Routes to Support database.
The helpline’s services are broad. They include safety planning, referral pathways, and updates on refuge spaces. It also offers information on local support services like outreach and counselling. This ensures professionals can respond swiftly and effectively, often crucial in securing immediate refuge spaces.
