Is the third Monday in January really the most ‘depressing day of the year’? Back in 2004 it was labelled Blue Monday by a travel company looking to promote its winter deals.

For many of the women we support, it isn’t especially ‘blue’: it’s just another difficult day.

All of the women we work with have experienced trauma – many during childhood or young adulthood. Last year, 85% were living with significant mental health needs. 53% were homeless and 74% had experienced increased poverty due to rising living costs.

Alana visited our health hub and told us:

"I am so grateful you are here.
Without this space I would feel so alone."

- Alana

Whatever they’re facing, we’re here for women day and night; 7 days a week.

They can access flexible healthcare in our health hub or meet with our caseworkers to get specialist support – from making a housing application to court proceedings against a violent partner. On dark nights, women who are street sex-working can step onto our outreach van and eat, receive first aid or simply take a moment to rest.

This Blue Monday, you can help us make sure that women in Bristol don’t have to face crisis alone.

Set up a regular donation today:

  • £9 could provide clothing and essential items for a woman, helping her be safer and healthier.
  • £25 could pay for our freephone service for a month, keeping women connected to vital support.

"I cannot tell you how much difference
the night time street visits made."

- Rikki
