2015/16 - Stroud Beresford Group
We are delighted to announce that our staff have raised a total of £12,290 for Stroud Beresford Group.
An organisation that supports victims of domestic abuse was adopted as the Charity of the Year by Hazlewoods.
It is a sad fact that on average two women a week are killed by a partner or ex-partner and at least 750,000 children a year witness domestic abuse.
Stroud Beresford Group has been offering accommodation, advice and support to families affected by domestic abuse for over 35 years.
A local, independent charity, it provides Gloucestershire’s only women’s refuge alongside a range of other services aimed at preventing domestic abuse or supporting those at risk.
Stroud Beresford Group also offers outreach services in the community for those affected by domestic abuse, including one to one support, group workshops for vulnerable people as well as professionals, together with a 12 week “Next Steps” programme.
The charity provides services to help children and their parents overcome their experiences, learn new skills and gain the confidence to build a happy life that is free from abuse.
