Practical Support for Victims of Domestic Abuse

At the Club meeting last week, we were joined by Rebecca Stones, Project Manager for Llamau Bridgend and Merthyr. Rebecca gave a general overview of Llamau’s work with victims of domestic abuse and extended her grateful thanks for our support both financially and, of course, with the gift bags, pamper bags and selection boxes at Christmas. Club members have also donated clothes, shoes and bags for the ladies in the refuge.

Rebecca was also keen to explore other ways in which members could offer hands-on support and a discussion ensued outlining the areas in which we could help. This included providing craft and chat sessions, confidence building and interviews skills, as well as many other areas. Rebecca will now ask her clients which activities  would interest them and will come back to us to take this project forward.

SI Bridgend has supported Domestic Violence services in Bridgend for many years, helping to set up the original Women’s Aid project, as well as lobbying the local authority to improve local services. We are looking forward to taking the next step forward to provide even more practical support in the future.
