Black Country Women’s Aid is an independent charity which has supported survivors of domestic abuse and sexual violence in the West Midlands for 30 years.
The sensitive and holistic support and refuge services help victims of domestic abuse, rape and sexual violence, child sexual exploitation, modern slavery and women involved with the criminal justice system, to escape from violence, cope with trauma and rebuild their lives.
There has been a rise in domestic violence since the beginning of lockdown. Coronavirus has led to increased isolation for all, making things much worse for victims who want help.
Black Country Women’s Aid is still open and giving support to victims. The organisation is asking you to support their fundraising appeal via Heart-to-Heart, a knitting challenge of Hearts and caterpillars.
The Heart-to-Heart Challenge was created to assist adults and children to get the help they need to overcome the trauma of violence, rape and exploitation.
