Charity of the Month: St Luke’s Cheshire Hospice

The charity for the month of October is St Luke’s Cheshire Hospice. This hospice has a skilled team consisting of nurses, therapists social workers, benefits advisers, counsellors, befrienders and a Spiritual Care and Chaplaincy team. It was set up in 1988 and it has been providing palliative care which goes beyond the scope and the finding of the NHS.

I got to hear about St Luke’s Cheshire Hospice some days ago from their fundraising team, and a quick look on their website told me all I needed to know. This charity is mainly funded by donations; about 85% of the care is funded by charity donations from the community and all the services provided by the hospice are free for the patients and their families.

Charities of the month: IDAS and The Children’s Charity

Hello everyone! This month, Fashion and Style Police is featuring two amazing charities. Whoop whoop!!

IDAS

The first is IDAS; a domestic violence charity in Yorkshire. IDAS stands for Independent Domestic Abuse Services. The charity was set up in 1977 and previously known as York Women’s Aid. IDAS is one of the first refuge providers in the UK and it all started in 2 bedroom flat donated by a local businessman in 1977. The charity has grown over the years and it now also covers other areas outside York. IDAS is the largest specialist charity in Yorkshire and the charity supports victims of domestic violence and sexual violence.

IDAS is doing an amazing job. No one should have to any form of violence, so it is great to see a charity supporting victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse. You can support the charity by giving here. Donations go a long way in helping those who need a place safe away from violence. You can also look at supporting IDAS by getting involved in voluntary work.

The Children’s Society

The second charity of the month is The Children’s Society. It is a national charity working hard to transform the lives of young victims of abuse, exploitation and neglect. The charity has been around for over 140 years and won’t stop until every child’s hope is alive. I think The Children’s Society is an amazing charity doing great things for the next generation. The vision is a society built for every child and their goal is:

By 2030 we will have overturned the damaging decline in children’s well-being, setting a path for long lasting growth.

Thanks for reading, sharing, commenting and donating. Also, catch up on the charity of the month for August 2021 – Sistah Space.

 

Charity of the Month: Sistah Space

The charity of the month this August is the one and only Sistah Space. I have been following the amazing work of this charity for many months after reading about the team in a book on coercive control, and I am happy to finally feature Sistah Space. For those who have never heard about Sistah Space, it is a charity that works with African and Caribbean women and girls who are victims of domestic violence or who know people who have experienced domestic violence.

Sistah Space provides advice and support to victims of domestic violence. The charity also provides practical help by providing hygiene products such as sanitary pads, panties, bras, toothbrushes, toothpaste, soaps and other essentials.

Charity of the Month – Sistah Space

This charity was founded in November 2015. It is a community-based non profit initiative set up to bridge the gap in domestic abise services for African heritage women and girls.

The Mission of the Charity 

Our mission is to encourage African heritage survivors/victims to report abuse by providing a safe cultural venue for victims to disclose abuse in a confidential environment, and to encourage community integration. 

It is always great to see a domestic violence charity dedicated to women from black and minority ethnic groups. Sistah Space is doing an amazing job by providing a safe place for women to come in and speak up. Many women are suffering in silence, this is why it is so important to talk about issues openly, so that does who need support can access them safely.

How to support Sistah Space
