Trust House Lincolnshire

A generous donation from a client

September 28th, 2017 by

 

Kath, our ISVA, supports clients in many ways. One part of her role is to support clients that are going through the criminal justice process and once that process is over she will support them in making an CICA application if it’s appropriate and that is what the client would like.

Recently, one of Kath’s clients made a CICA application and was awarded a sum of money.

We fully understand that there can be a great deal of mixed emotions for our clients connected with being awarded money through the CICA process – anger that they are in such a position in the first place to being happy that they have a sum of money that can mean that they can go on holiday or help a loved one. Often ISVA clients are also going through the counselling process with us as well and when a CICA application is made, and then possibly awarded, their counsellor is there to help support them with their feelings around the process.

Once Jane* had been awarded the money she decided that she would like to make a donation to the service of £2,000.

Though we do not expect our clients to donate to us at all, this donation means that we are now able to finish off another counselling room with a new radiator and other things to make the room as warm and comfortable as possible. Demand for our counselling service is growing every day and being able to finish this room means that we will be able to offer more clients counselling each week.

Jane, thank you so much for your generosity.  As a small charity with limited funds, donations such as this make a huge difference to how we are able to support clients.

*not the client’s real name as they wish to remain anonymous.

Recent fundraising and grants

August 25th, 2017 by

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported us recently with fundraising. Any money raised for the service, or any grants we are awarded allows us to continue the work we do with our clients.

Firstly, one of our volunteers raised just over £1,000 for the service by running the Tough Mudder with her son.Thank you Sam!

Our thanks go to the local fire station who raised £400 for the service with a fundraising event held at Grantham’s Asda.

We have also been lucky enough to have been awarded a £50,000 grant from the PCC. Thank you for your support.

All money raised or grants awarded goes directly to the service, allowing us to recruit more volunteers which in turn allows us to offer more counselling spaces to anyone who lives in Lincolnshire and has been affected by rape or sexual abuse. We don’t ask our clients to pay for their counselling sessions, meaning that more people are able to come and receive support from us. Fundraising and grants means that we are able to keep offering our services for free.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us recently!

Volunteer Tough Mudder Fundraiser

March 14th, 2017 by

Sam and her 11 year old son are taking on Tough Mudder to raise money for Trust House Lincolnshire. The course is 5 miles with 15 gruelling obstacles with the children tackling a mile course with 7 obstacles.

As a service we rely on generous donations to ensure sustainability for the benefit of our clients. We have clients ranging from as young as 4 and as old as 75, with your generosity we can ensure our clients receive the appropriate levels of support  for the foreseeable future and to develop further support.

We’re aiming to raise £1,000 to Trust House Lincolnshire . Please donate to my JustGiving Crowdfunding Page and help make it happen:

Our CEO, Fay Maxted, is awarded an OBE.

October 12th, 2015 by

We’re proud to announce that on Tuesday 6th October our CEO, Fay Maxted, was presented with an OBE (Officer of the most excellent Order of the British Empire) in recognition of her “services to survivors and victims of rape and sexual violence”

Fay Maxted is presented with an OBE

Fay has been CEO of The Survivors Trust since 2004. Fay serves on the National Police Chief Council for Rape (Response) Working Group; she is also on the Panel for the Children’s Commissioner’s Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse in the family environment and last July, she was also appointed to the V&SCP (Victims & Survivors Consultative Panel) of the independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse headed by Justice Lowell Goddard DNZM, QC.

Fay Maxted OBE said: “As a survivor myself, it is quite something to go from feeling so ashamed at what I had experienced, to being at Buckingham Palace in this highest symbol of honour. I hope this can speak to every single survivor of rape & sexual violence / abuse and communicate that, while your life will never be the same, it need not be over.”

Congratulations Fay!

Congratulations to our first Trust House Lincolnshire volunteers!

August 28th, 2015 by

A huge well done to our first group of Trust House Lincolnshire volunteers who completed their induction training this month!

It’s been a pleasure to work with such an engaged group of people and we’re excited about moving forward with you all. Thank you for dedicating some of your time to us, we couldn’t run the service as we hope without your support.
