Our friends at SHE UK do amazing things for the local community, and they are located just up the road from us. The small Mansfield-based team support adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse, rape and assault through a comprehensive range of therapeutic services, delivered from their small property in the centre of Mansfield town.
The charity was in the running, pitched against four others in the local area for a share of almost £250,000 of funding. We set to work, as did members of the Board, and the staff and supporters of SHE UK to bang the drum for the charity to help them win a share of this funding.
The money was intended to help facilitate the weekly sessions that run at the Mansfield-property where survivors come together to share their experiences and help each other as a group to become stronger and take back control of their lives to help them achieve their full potential and goals in life.
So it is with utter joy, that we can help announce that SHE UK have won more than £68,000 in the People’s Projects Awards which will be a transformative sum for the survivors supported by the charity.
The charity was showcased on the local ITV network as part of this campaign, and you can watch the film that was broadcast right here: https://www.thepeoplesprojects.org.uk/projects/view/she-roes-lounge-and-peer-group
