Today we have the following Refuge vacancies:

 

West Mercia Women's Aid has been selected from 600 organisations to receive a visit from Princess Anne on the 15th January 2014.

During her visit the Princess Royal will meet service users, young people, staff and board members and find out about the work of the organisation.

WMWA has been supporting vulnerable women and children experiencing domestic abuse across Herefordshire, Worcestershire & Shropshire for over 30 years and is proud to receive recognition of the amazing work that has been achieved during that time.

A speaker from the UK’s leading national lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender helpline organisation was the guest of honour at a recent event in Hereford.

The Broken Rainbow workshop took place at West Mercia Women’s Aid headquarters in Hereford.

Attended by thirty West Mercia Women’s Aid employees – who cover Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Shropshire – the event focussed on how best to support LGBT clients.

A pilot project to offer help to domestic abuse victims at Royal Shrewsbury Hospital has been launched by Shropshire’s leading domestic abuse agency.

The initiative – launched by West Mercia Women’s Aid – offers an Independent Domestic Violence Advisor (IDVA) – to patients visiting the maternity and accident and emergency departments at the hospital.

The Advisor will spend 15 hours a week working alongside healthcare professionals who will refer high risk women for help and support.

A special initiative that gives children and young people the chance to work with adults for the day and be involved in decision making is being supported by West Mercia Women’s Aid.

The national event, entitled The Children’s Commissioner’s Take Over Day, will take place on Friday 22 November and involve children and young people from both Herefordshire and Worcestershire.

West Mercia Women’s Aid has already recruited 5 young people to ‘take over’ the organisation’s CRUSH programme for the day.  The recruitment process was assisted by Hereford Sixth Form College, and Worcester Sixth Form College, which advertised the positions on behalf of West Mercia Women’s Aid.

West Mercia Women’s Aid is encouraging residents in Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Shropshire to whiteribbon-hshirepledge their support to an international event that aims to end violence against women.

Entitled The 16 Days of Action, the campaign will be launched globally on Monday 25 November and will run until Tuesday 10 December.

Organised nationally by The White Ribbon Campaign, people up and down the country can pledge their support by visiting area specific pages.
