What We Do

 

“I don’t know why this happened to me and I’m scared of getting into another relationship in case it happens again”.

 

The charity is rapidly growing into a vibrant hub which serves the community of Paisley and Renfrewshire.

Our focus is on empowering families to live fulfilled lives free from abuse.

Many women feel isolated after they have left their abuser and all the support has gone.

They struggle to make sense of what has happened to them and this can stop them from forming new

relationships as they are terrified of it happening again.

We aim to explain that this can happen to anyone, and it’s absolutely not the fault of the victim.

Coercion is a gradual process which can have devastating results.

If the victims learns what happened, why it happened and how to spot very early warning signs,

they will be able to remove themselves from a future situation well before they are in too deep.

This knowledge will empower the individual to confidently enter a new, healthy and loving relationship.

 

“I don’t know how to look after money, I need someone to do this for me”.

 

We see many victims of financial abuse who have never been allowed to control their own finances.

This leaves the individual unable to live an independent life, and they will quickly find another

relationship believing it’s their only option.

We are setting up a financial course which will teach each person the basics of budgeting,

how the banks can help victims of domestic abuse, and much more. This will give the individual the

confidence to live a successful life free of abuse.

 

We run various groups and services.

Our groups are a fantastic way for people to join others with similar experiences. We try to tailor our

groups to subjects that will interest, inform and empower our participants.

We have a garden group which we will be aiming to transform our garden into a wonderful place for us

all to meet, relax and recover. This area will include tranquil meeting areas, a sensory garden, an area where we

can enjoy the sun when it shines.

We also run meditation and wellness classes, as well as arts and crafts.

We are always on the lookout for more ideas for groups and listen carefully

to our service users and the wider community.

All of our courses are open to all women. They are not just for the victims of domestic abuse.

Our focus is on empowering all women to live their best lives.
