Due to austerity measures and national cuts to crucial funds, over 1,000 WOMEN A WEEK are turned away from receiving the shelter and help they need to escape their abusers…
Whilst Making Herstory does not have the resources (as yet!) to directly house, shelter and aid survivors of violence and abuse, we work to:
- Refer women and girls in need of help to the appropriate authorities and agencies;
- Raise funds to directly aid individual survivors of rape, violence and human trafficking where support is unavailable to them at the point of escape;
- Campaign with, and raise awareness / funds for, specialist agencies working to support survivors of enslavement, human trafficking and abuse in the provision of rehabilitative support, shelter, legal aid and basic goods;
- Teach wider communities on HOW TO SPOT THE SIGNS OF ABUSE to enable survivors and those seeking to help them to take positive action against all forms of gender-based abuses.
If you, or someone you know, is suffering abuse, please call the UK 24 hour National Domestic Violence Helpline on:
