Update from the Angelou Centre

All of our services are still operational we are working remotely and onsite, following public health advice and social distancing measures.  We are still taking referrals for our violence against women services and recruiting learners for our online training and activities. Our emergency refuge accommodation remains open but we are currently full.

We have temporarily suspended all activities that involve onsite face to face gatherings of people.

Join The 2.6 Challenge to help to support our work with women & girls

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating effect on charities, with the cancellation of thousands of events and the loss of billions in fundraising income.  In response, the organisers of the biggest mass-participation sports events across the country have come together to create a new campaign to raise vital funds to help to save the UK’s charities.

The 2.6 Challenge launched on Sunday 26 April – what should have been the date of the 40th London Marathon, the world’s biggest one-day annual fundraising event.

Priti Patel announces domestic abuse funds and arrangements

Priti Patel spoke on 11th April at the daily government briefing on plans for tackling the rise in calls for support from women facing domestic violence.

"in the last week alone, the National Domestic Abuse Helpline reported a 120% rise in the number of calls it received in one 24-hour period.

Now while we have not yet seen a sustained rise in reports of domestic abuse to the police, the increase in those seeking help for this hidden crime is extremely concerning. And be in no doubt, there will be absolutely no let-up in our operational response.

Do you need digital support?

There are lots of pro bono offers for digital and technical support being talked about on the internet, on social channels, on online networks. Womens' Resource Centre want to see if we can harness that for you. If you think your charity needs such help for digital and tech through this urgent time due to Covid-19, we want to know what that is. We hope but do not guarantee that we will be able to access such support for you.

Tell us what you need by contacting hannah@wrc.org.uk
