A huge thank you to everyone who supported One25 through the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2022. In just one week, you raised an amazing £64,424 for drop-in!
For women living with trauma, violence and homelessness, few places feel safe. Drop-in offers a doorway to hope: a safe place where women can have a hot meal, receive healthcare, and connect with other support services.
Recently Valerie told us she feels “valued and special” at drop-in.
With the steep rise in living costs and the cold weather now upon us, women need drop-in more than ever. Thank you for making sure we can provide a vital place of safety and support.
"I came in off the streets but your energy and work made me cope. Otherwise I wouldn’t be here now."- Camilla
Our drop-in team offer crisis care and link women to specialist support. For many women, coming to drop-in is the first step in a journey of recovery.
95 women visited drop-in for support last year. Many are trapped in street sex work and 96% have experienced domestic abuse and/or sexual violence during their lives. Last year we saw higher numbers of women experiencing homelessness (84%) and chronic physical health needs (93%).
The Big Give Christmas Challenge ran from 29 November until 6 December. During that time, donations made through the Big Give website could be doubled in value. Every pound donated unlocked a pound from a pot of match funds!
