How will your contribution help women keep themselves and their children safe?

Your support of this campaign will fund our 24-hour specialist services for women and children, who are or have been experiencing domestic abuse. This will benefit a wide range of families, from those in crisis and requiring emergency help and a safe place to go, to those who may need ongoing support within the community or counselling for historic experiences of abuse.


How will your contribution help bring about change in the lives of those affected by domestic abuse?

The 21K Club will fund JWR’s counselling services and group work empowering women to find a way forward when they feel ready and able to move on. It will also support JWR’s education and training programmes. This highlights the complex causes behind domestic violence, and the impact of healthy and unhealthy relationships. Our work is designed to raise awareness and understanding among the Jersey public, targeting in particular young people and professionals.

Domestic Violence is any form of physical, emotional, sexual or financial abuse which is used to gain power and control over the other person in an intimate relationship.

Women often say emotional abuse is worse than physical abuse as it leaves no visible scars, is difficult to prove and can be very damaging.

Children living with domestic violence can also suffer in a variety of ways; either by witnessing violence itself, by being used as emotional pawns or indirectly by the stress suffered by their mother.
