We know that women are particularly at risk who are experiencing domestic abuse, don’t have secure housing or have immediate health issues. Many more will be feeling isolated and anxious. Their needs are the reason we exist and the services we offer are essential.
Here’s how staff and volunteers will be adapting services from Thursday morning to keep meeting women where they are:
All service teams will be working together to keep engaging with women by phone (providing phones where necessary) and by meeting to give food and activity packs.
In the ways that worked so well before, we’ll be right there for women with love, practical help and professional support. We’re there so that each one will be on their own path to safety and thriving. We hope that we will be able to resume our vital face-to-face services as soon as is safe again.
Please keep holding each of them, and all of us, in your hearts. I hope that those you are close to can stay safe and keep caring for one another.
