Glow's Recovery Hub receives £45,000 to continue work
with domestic abuse survivors
We’re so excited to share that we’ll continue running our domestic abuse Recovery Hub from April 1 for the next two years, thanks to funding from the National Lottery!
We launched the Recovery Hub, a safe space for female survivors of domestic abuse to rebuild their lives following an abusive relationship, last year.
The Staffordshire service delivers support to women in lots of different ways to help them recognise and understand abuse, build up a support network, develop their confidence and increase self-esteem.
Now the hub has secured £45,000 in funding from the National Lottery Community Fund’s ‘Know Your Neighbourhood’ fund.
The money will support the Recovery Hub’s group programmes – the Freedom Programme, Recognise and Reconnect and the Recovery Toolkit – which are currently delivered by specialist staff and volunteers. Sessions help women understand abuse, recognise the tactics used by perpetrators and learn how to build relationships with their children again.
Funding will also support social and wellbeing activities within the community, where our team encourage women to socialise, make friendships and build support networks.
Domestic Abuse Outreach Services Team Leader Becky Federoff leads the Recovery Hub.
She said: “We’re thrilled to have received this National Lottery funding to continue the important work of our Recovery Hub.
“Since launching the Recovery Hub last year, we’ve seen the women that we support increase their confidence, self-esteem and self-worth.
“Our specialist team work with them to increase their resilience and make sure they have all the tools and support available to them, to continue with their ongoing recovery journey. Customers feel valued, with a greater sense of purpose and belonging.
“We’re also proud of our volunteers, many of whom have lived experience, who have become incredible ambassadors for Glow and the Recovery Hub. They have increased their knowledge of domestic abuse and developed the skills needed to identify any issues they come across in the community.
“We’ve recently started our social and wellbeing activities which have been a huge success. They’re already building on the initial work of the hub’s group programmes to help women build support networks, make new friendships and just have fun.
“I’m so proud of the whole team and can’t thank the National Lottery enough for their support. We’re so excited to continue our important work towards a future free from abuse.”
