At Safe and Sound Dorset, we are passionate about seeing all women discover and realise their full potential, fully integrating and participating in society. We see the value of all women, and we work to build confidence in each other through community and creativity.
Unfortunately for many reasons, whether through circumstance, health, abuse, isolation or background, we can find ourselves in difficult situations and lack confidence to build a support network or make steps to help ourselves. Sometimes we just need a friend, or help for something practical.
Safe and Sound Dorset provide a safe space where our all-female staff and volunteer team can offer women who are isolated or at risk in Bournemouth confidential, practical and emotional support. This might be advice and signposting for housing, education and employment, and specific things like Universal Credit online applications. As well as supporting personal appointments such as medical, housing, prison, rehab and recovery, and court, we are a friend and listening ear through challenging times.
Last year we saw our teams help get women into permanent housing, begin new jobs or volunteering opportunities, connect with key local services, be reunited with family members, build confidence, start new hobbies, learn new skills, make new friends, build support networks and more... We're excited to do even more in 2019!
These sessions need resources for things like food, art materials, travel costs for outreach and appointments, and the expert advice that helps us make a real difference. We need your help so we can continue to offer and even expand our service.
For every £1 you play through our page with BH Coastal Lottery, 50p comes directly to us, 10p to other local causes in Bournemouth, and you still have a chance of winning something for yourself.
Thank you for your support, and good luck!
