The examples below outline how you can get involved, but we’d love to hear from so we can discuss how you can make a difference.

Recruitment

Volunteer with us

Join our dedicated team of volunteers who give their time and skills to help us make a difference to women and families affected by domestic abuse.

Why volunteer?

  • Make a real difference to the lives of women and children
    Develop life, family and work experiences and skills
  • Put spare time or retirement to good use
  • Gain work experience and enhance your CV
  • Meet people and make friends
  • Get more involved in the community
  • Give back to an organisation that has supported you

To ensure volunteers have a rewarding and enjoyable experience, we provide:

  • A variety of roles
  • Induction and volunteer handbook
  • Training
  • Support
  • Volunteer group meetings
  • Expenses
  •  Invitations to social and other events

Could you be a volunteer?

We are committed to involving volunteers with diverse experiences and needs. We’d love to hear from you, please speak with the Volunteer Coordinator to find out how you can get involved.

Fundraise

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.

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.

Become a Trustee

We are always looking for Trustees to join our team. If you have the knowledge and understanding to provide direction, maintain an oversight of activities at a strategic level and can contribute well informed views, constructive challenge and a commitment to best practice, we’d love to hear from you.

    I’m exhausted! I’m so tired. I can’t even think straight. I feel numb. Why is he doing this? I just want a ‘normal’ family. Why can’t I move on? He has, he’s happy, always boasting about how good his life is with his new girlfriend and going on holidays. It’s me, I just don’t know … Continue reading How are you?
