Make It Better

Do one thing … Make It Better 

We are inviting you to ‘Do one thing’ and raise funds for local children and young people living with domestic violence.

On behalf of Women’s Aid ABCLN we would like to thank you for supporting the Make It Better Appeal last year.  In total we raised an astonishing £20,827.73

Through our work we are continually faced with the innocent victims of domestic abuse. Women’s Aid ABCLN has identified that domestic violence impacts on the development and learning of over 80% of young people accessing our services. We offer practical and emotional support working with children and young people that are at risk of underachieving in school. Our aim is to re-engage them in education and learning by providing practical resources and educational support. We provide a safe place to learn free from violence, abuse and threat.

We need your help…

The Make It Better projects costs approx. £150,000 per year to run, and to continue providing these services to children and young people we need to raise enough funds to sustain this project every year. Our vital services provided support to over 5,000 children and young people last year who had been affected by domestic violence.                                                                     

Do one thing…

We are asking you to get involved and ‘Do one thing to Make It Better’ for children and young people affected by domestic violence. We are asking you to get involved to help make the difference to the lives of many children and young people. Planning your own event is a great way to support us, as there are so many types to choose from. Whether you are organising a pub quiz, bring a pound to work, fun day or coffee morning, there will be an event to suit you.
