Supporting Survivors of Violence & Abuse

Across the UK, 1 in 4 women have experienced some form of violence or abuse; a call for help is made to the police every 2 minutes, and over 1,000 women a week are turned away from emergency shelters due to a lack of available space or funding.

In an effort to aid survivors in their efforts to break free of an abuser, we work to:

  1. Refer women and girls in need of help to the appropriate authorities and agencies.
  2. Raise funds through our Emergency Survivors Fund to directly aid individual survivors of rape, violence and human trafficking where support is unavailable to them at the point of escape.
  3. Purchase and collect essential goods for women and their children living in our supported shelters through our MJ Refuge Project.
  4. Campaign with, and raise awareness / funds for, specialist agencies working to support survivors of enslavement, human trafficking and abuse.
  5. Train communities on how to spot the signs of trafficking or abuse and aid survivors in order to expand grassroots outreach points.

If you, or someone you know, is experiencing any forms of abuse, please contact your nearest specialist agency HERE.
