Why we are here

a lit candle on a table

All of the women One25 works with have experienced trauma.

We meet women who are deeply traumatised from childhood abuse and violence. This leads to life situations where they are stigmatised, marginalised, locked out of society. Many are in crisis and many are street sex-working. Yet these courageous women show tremendous skills and potential: in their supportive peer relationships, their creativity and humour, and their survival.

The specialist services we offer, alongside our ethos of non-judgemental, unconditional love, make a huge impact.

Our vision is of a world where all women are safe, feel loved and thrive.

One25 worked with 271 women in 2022-23:

93% have experienced domestic or sexual violence

85% have significant mental health needs

66% have chronic physical health needs

53% are homeless

73% are addicted to drugs or alcohol

55% have disclosed childhood abuse

74% experience exacerbated poverty due to the cost-of-living crisis

They’re somebody’s daughter, somebody’s sister, even somebody’s mother… And we have a vision. We don’t just want to see them make safer, healthier choices – we want to see them absolutely thrive! This is the difference we want to make and the impact we have.

Each woman’s journey is unique and precious

Our working ethos of unconditional love means we work with each woman who needs support until she is ready to move on. Wherever she is on her journey, we give love and practical support, without judgement or expectation. We celebrate each step and we never give up.
