Fundraising events are a great way to raise money for the Broxtowe Women’s Project and a fun way to support our work. You can take part in one of our organised events, plan your own fundraiser or take part in a sponsored activity to support us.
We are pleased to be able to finally share with you our new fundraising pack. the Pack contains useful information for you to organise an afternoon tea event on behalf of BWP. Money raised from these events will go directly into support services for women and children affected by domestic abuse. If you have any questions or needs some support please contact the fundraising team who will help you through the process.
There are a number of ways you can support our work and help to make a real difference to women and children suffering from domestic abuse. All donations, no matter how small, are gratefully received.
By giving us £15 you will enable us to provide a woman with 1 hour’s phone support – this could be her first time of telling anyone about the abuse and could be the beginning of a journey where she can become free from fear.
By giving us £45 you will enable us to provide a woman with 2 hours of outreach support – meeting her in a safe and confidential venue and working alongside her to establish her needs and options. This may be her only opportunity to be listened to and taken seriously.
By giving us £65 you will enable us to assist a woman in crisis into refuge. This can take several hours of liaising with various agencies and lots of support, encouragement and reassurance, especially if there are children involved. This could be a woman’s next step to freedom.
You can now show your support for Broxtowe Women’s Project when you use Savoo Search, Save and Raise as your online shopping platform. Your efforts cost you nothing because Savoo donates on your behalf. Find out more here…

It was one of those cases where I got a chilled feeling when the lady who’d just been referred to me was describing her situation with her husband. I completed a risk assessment form (DASH) which we as outreach workers do for all new referrals. Her score was only medium risk, not supposedly serious enough … Continue reading Coercive Control
