The Friends of Housing for Women
The ‘Friends’ are a group of individuals who wish to establish or maintain some link with Housing for Women. They believe in our mission and want to support us and the work that we do. The group aims to contribute to the work of Housing for Women by delivering on going support and advocacy, as well as providing a community for like – minded supporters to connect and network.
As part of their activities, The ‘Friends’ raise money each year in order to provide women with opportunities that may be difficult to find funding for or are not provided locally.
The ‘Friends’ assist in making seemingly-straightforward tasks for some people accessible for the most vulnerable - including family trips. These opportunities help to build self-esteem, improve relationships with their children and help service users feel more socially included in the community.
