Our Partners

BWP recognises the value of Partnership.

By working together with a range of experts to share knowledge, we will be able to make an even bigger difference to the families we support. Here are some of the Partners we support:

Often, the families we support need dedicated help to attain financial independence.

We are delighted to work closely with PayPlan, who offer free, simple debt advice to our clients.

PayPlan’s mission is to help people become debt-free through clear, honest advice and debt solutions that work.

Their dedicated vulnerable client team has grown over recent years to ensure that our particularly vulnerable clients receive appropriate support. PayPlan is now a recognised leader in its offering for vulnerable clients. This is demonstrated by PayPlan’s internal and external training programmes, which BWP helped them develop.

BWP have also been pleased to work alongside PayPlan in the development of our Financial Wellbeing materials, and alongside this we have developed a training package looking at Domestic Abuse and Economic Abuse.

We are proud to support the International Day for the elimination of violence against women –
also known as White Ribbon Day

On this day each year, men throughout the world are encouraged to recognise the necessity for them to stand up and take responsibility in working towards a future without violence against women and girls.

Although initiated by men, White Ribbon and all it stands for has been embraced by many groups within the community including colleges, businesses and women’s groups such as BWP. It’s a time when communities can get together and embrace a common goal of doing everything possible to eliminate misogynistic hate towards women.

Check out our news pages for more details on White Ribbon day and the work that BWP are doing to ensure this important message is heard all year round.

The Employers Initiative on Domestic Abuse (EIDA) are a growing network of employers that come from a wide variety of sectors, working collectively to take action on domestic abuse.

EIDA work with their members and partners to ensure every business is equipped with the tools they need to better support their employees affected by domestic abuse.

Only through greater awareness, relationship building and the sharing of best practice can we make a systematic change to the way domestic abuse is thought about and handled in the UK. EIDA believe that every employer plays an important part in that.

When employers demonstrate that they are aware of domestic abuse and make staff aware of the services that are available, this can help to reduce the wall of silence about domestic abuse that prevents many from seeking help.

We are proud to be part of the Consent Coalition – a group of organisations within Nottingham who are working together to raise awareness of the importance of consent, banish myths about rape and sexual violence, and encourage survivors to access support and report any sexual violence.

The Consent Coalition stands together to say that Nottingham does not tolerate any form of sexual violence.

We were happy to support the Consent Coalition recently on their A to Z of Consent campaign

The A-Z of Consent campaign gives key consent facts for each letter of the alphabet. Each letter has an accompanying consent poster.

Consent doesn’t have to be complicated, lets understand together.

The Consent Coalition aims:

  • To stand together and show that Nottingham does not tolerate any kind of sexual violence
  • To improve the understanding of consent
  • To empower victims and survivors of rape and sexual violence to seek support and/or report assaults to the police
  • To expose and challenge rape myths
  • To increase empathy towards survivors of sexual violence
  • To promote healthy and equal relationships
  • To prevent misogyny and sexual harassment
  • To challenge ‘lad culture’
