Our employees recently donated a number of much needed products to the Women’s Refuge. The products included cleaning products for the home as well as personal items for those who may turn up without any supplies.
The Women’s Refuge is focused on supporting women and children who are experiencing violence or abuse and need to get away such violence, threats, intimidation or bullying – either physical, sexual, psychological or financial. The Refuge offers a safe space to women and their children who do not feel safe in their own home.
The Women’s Refuge is a safe house for families to stay until they feel able to move on. Each resident has their own shared room ( shared with their children) with their own access key. The Shelter also offers a shared living room, kitchen, bathroom and shower room, laundry facilities and a children’s playroom.
Residents can be put in touch with various people and agencies who can help them on a range of matters including housing, benefits, legal matters, counselling services and medical services.
Director and joint head of our Corporate & Commercial team, Tristan Head commented, “The Isle of Man Women’s Refuge provides an invaluable service offering a safe haven for women suffering from violence, threats, intimidation and bullying. I would like to thank our staff members who generously donated items to the charity.”
