Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing well. The Charity of the Month blog series is all about supporting charities that are close to my heart, and Battle Scars is one of them.
I recently came across this amazing charity on LinkedIn and I have been following their work ever since. Battle Scars is a charity set up to provide local, regional, national as well as international support around self-harm. The aim of the charity is to break down the stigma surrounding self-harm, raise awareness, dispel myths and provide support to those who need it. Many people battle with all sorts of scars privately for various reasons and sometimes they may feel like there is no help available to get them out of their predicament. This is why charities like Battle Scars are really important. They do an amazing job and provide a great service to those who are at a vulnerable season in their lives.
Charity of the Month – Battle Scars
Battle Scars is a small dedicated 100% survivor-led charity. The team runs a Facebook group providing peer support all around the clock. They also offer training for professionals on self-harm and eating disorders on set dates.
