Derbyshire WISH


Derbyshire WISH is a supported housing project which provides emergency, short term refuge for women & children fleeing domestic violence. 

Many of the women have to leave home in a hurry, often with children, and arrive with nothing. SI Derby have committed to give 12 welcome packs, twice a year and to provide further packs if necessary.

Each welcome pack contains:

SI Derby also looks after the garden, visiting as the seasons change.

  • soap
  • tooth brush and toothpaste
  • shower cream and shampoo
  • flannel and towel
  • a small hairbrush
  • sanitary pads
  • tea
  • coffee
  • cereal
  • sugar
  • milk
  • packet of biscuits
  • chocolate bar.

We also provide a certain amount of food for the store cupboard – tins of beans etc.
