Changing Lives has received a £1000 grant from The Morrisons Foundation, which has enabled our team to provide wellbeing packs to women accessing our specialist services in Wolverhampton this International Women's Day.
Our teams across Wolverhampton work with women who have been or are at risk of being – sexually exploited, involved in sex work or survival sex. We also support women involved with the Criminal Justice System to overcome personal challenges and resettle into society and avoid reoffending.
The funding has allowed teams to make these fantastic wellbeing packs to give to the women they support for this week’s International Women’s Day.
Josie Webb, Caseworker at our New Chance / Project Worker – IRIS projects, said:
“We are so grateful for the support with funding Morrisons have been able to provide us for IWD this year. It enabled us to continue to show our support and solidarity during lockdown by creating wellbeing parcels for door stop drops to our amazing women who have faced hardships this year. We were able to fill it with journals, mindfulness colouring, face masks, hand cream, tea etc,. To encourage our women this year to take some time to love and appreciate ourselves during this pandemic. Our women have loved these and has made a huge difference in this period of severe isolation.”
Thank you to The Morrisons Foundation for supporting Changing Lives and making a difference in women’s lives facing such tough challenges.
