My Sisters Place is a small, local charity, making a big difference to the lives of women and children suffering from domestic abuse. We change lives and in some cases save lives.
Domestic abuse is an issue which impacts on individuals, families, communities and employers. In the UK alone, 2 women a WEEK are killed at the hands of a partner or former partner and 10 women a WEEK take their own lives ,as a direct result of domestic abuse.
My Sisters Place believes in the importance of women and children’s voices in the North East being heard and valued. We challenge all forms of violence and abuse against women and children through accessible free support services, education, advocacy and leading the way to social change. We support over 1000 women and their children every year to live safely, gain access to justice and improve their health and well-being. This work saves lives and shapes future relationships for the many children who live with violence.
Support from local businesses is vital for us to keep this work going ensuring we can help more women and children to live safer, happier lives free from domestic abuse.
