We continually work to forge partnerships with other Non-Government Organisations (NGOs), believing that by‘working together we can make a difference’.
The Prison Reform Trust (PRT) is an independent UK charity working to create a just, humane and effective penal system. They believe that reducing the women’s prison population through providing better alternatives to custody should be a government priority.
UNICEF UK is a registered charity raising funds and awareness to support UNICEF’s work to protect child rights worldwide, in accordance with the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC).
The Purple Teardrop Campaign is a Soroptimist International initiative and follows the work against human trafficking done by European and Northern England Soroptimists whose campaign colours and ribbons are purple. The Poole club launched its Purple Teardrop Campaign against Human Trafficking in December 2009. The club’s aim is to spread the Purple Teardrop message as far and as wide as they can. They invite Soroptimists to hold workshops and seminars, distribute posters and sell Purple Teardrop pin-badges in their local communities so as to raise awareness and much needed victim support funds.
