Many thanks to Joette Thomas of Animate Consulting for delivering six weeks of pro-bono consultancy to organisations funded through the Equally Safe Violence against Women Fund and Rape Crisis Specific Fund.
In total 37 organisations benefitted from twelve sessions, delivered by Zoom, to support colleagues during lockdown. Topics included delivering services to children and young people, supporting women who have No Recourse to Public Funds and the situation of frontline workers.
“Discussions took place in a mutually supportive environment where colleagues volunteered information, shared resources and offered assistance for the future.”
“Being part of a fuller group is so refreshing when home working and helps make workers feel connected.”
“It was really good chatting to other workers and seeing we all have our own difficulties in supporting women and children but great to know we are all doing the best we can at this difficult time”
Thanks to Joette and all those who participated to make the sessions beneficial.
