Solace launches crowdfunding appeal with The Big Give to produce awe-inspiring video that will convey just how Solace helps survivors of domestic or sexual violence on their journey to recovery. This will give survivors a voice and demonstrate how they were able to recover and rebuild their lives free from abuse. Solace will use the video to secure an extra £40K a year plus other help and support, ensuring Solace can continue to provide vital services to survivors of domestic and sexual abuse.
Many people think that removing women and children from the immediate control of an abusive man solves the problem of domestic and sexual abuse. Solace knows this is often only the first step for many survivors. Our recent research indicated that over 90% experienced post-separation abuse, and that there is a critical need for specialist support for women and children in the period after leaving an abusive situation.
We offer survivors vital on-going support that is tailored to individual need, listening to and believing every woman or child who asks for help. This is highly effective in helping them to recover and rebuild their lives. However, to provide this level of support we need to convince donors and funders of the positive impact of providing our services, however long it takes to help survivors build independent lives free from abuse. The video will tell our service users stories to help us do this.
