BWP celebrates its 20th birthday

This year, BWP are excited to celebrate our 20th Birthday!

In 2021, BWP celebrates its 20th birthday. Our plans may now be more “virtual” than we had envisaged but we remain positive that later this year we will all be able to celebrate together.

Over the next few weeks and months, we will be sharing memories of the last 20 years. How BWP came into being, how things have changed over the last 20 years, and our own memories of those years – whether working with BWP, elsewhere or growing up!

If you have any thoughts or memories you would like to share with us, we would love to hear them. You can email us, message us on social media or talk to one of the team.

Please keep checking back to see what we have added. We will be also be sharing information about the celebrations for our 20th birthday on our social channels.

Thank you for your ongoing support. We’re proud of what we’ve achieved over the last 20 years, helping women and families escape domestic abuse and rebuilding their lives. We hope to be here for many more years to come!

Love, The Broxtowe Women’s Project team

The two women discuss what the landscape was for domestic abuse support 20 years ago and how things have evolved to the present day. Focusing on not only how people’s attitudes and legislation in this area has changed, but all that BWP has achieved both past and present in such a changing environment.
