For survivors of violence against women and girls – particularly those from minoritised and marginalised communities – stigma, shame and isolation create barriers to support. This, coupled with additional unmet needs, can make the day-to-day feel overwhelming.
Our VAWG Grassroots Fund, funded by the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC), is a richly diverse cohort of 41 women-led organisations who work tirelessly to support these women and girls. Their services particularly support women facing multiple disadvantage where mainstream, generic provision is not always appropriate.
As the fund passes its halfway point, we asked the incredible organisations involved to report on the number of women and girls being supported, and how they are getting on with their recovery.
We are delighted to report that 100% of these organisations shared that their beneficiaries are better able to cope with everyday life because of the support and interventions they have provided. Join us in celebrating this milestone achievement by reading our latest blog.
