Methods’ charity for 2021 is Women’s Aid. Their support services, which include the Live Chat Helpline and the Survivors’ Forum, help thousands of women and children every year. These online services have become increasingly important as women have sought discrete ways to reach out for help. One woman said “Live Chat meant I could type quietly on my screen rather than speaking on the phone, which is exactly what I needed”.
Methods first fundraising event will be held on International Women’s Day and we will be fundraising to sponsor over 100 live chats. We will be encouraging all our staff to donate for every time they use a live chat function during the working day. Our aim is to raise over £1000. Our fundraising link is www.justgiving.com/fundraising/methodsforwomensaid
Please do whatever you can to help support us, get invoved, donate everytime you use a live chat throughout your working day and help provide a service that is a real life-line to those women who are trapped at home with their abusers.
