During the pandemic we prioritised helping refuges by supplying them with much needed basic toiletries and cleaning stuff, sometimes extra toilet roll and for some disposable cups and/or crockery to help with hygiene in shared housing
We do what we can to support staff working in refuges but we know money is tighter than ever and the demand for help growing at this time.
We want to acknowledge the amazing work of staff everywhere helping those at risk to stay safe in really tough times!
Black And Blue is a registered charity set up to find weird, wonderful or just plain workable ways to promote non-violence to anyone who will listen.
We have paid for high risk victims to escape, for trafficked families to have their first safe nights sleep in their own bedding and for victims of honour based violence to stay safe.
If you would like to work with us in any capacity don't be afraid to get in touch. We are particularly interested in reaching children and people who might not otherwise hear our message through social media. We love to Tweet!
Education programming and training courses are great, but we think that there are lots of visual, virtual and fun ways to influence people. Along the way we also raise funds and working with partners directly help or just bring a smile to people affected by domestic and sexual violence, hate crime and abuse. We are pretty good at helping people at risk get to safety or to stay safe with your help.
A huge thank you to some of our recent funders:
The Leathersellers Charitable Fund, and the Yorkshire Building Society Charitable Foundation, who between them funded most of our Safe Night's Project last year. The amazingly generous people at the Warburtons Community Grant who not only funded Safe Phones but also at the start of the pandemic funded hundreds of much needed items for refuges. Thank you so much. We also wish to thank Paypal Giving, Give As You Live, our wonderful patron Beccy Owen, and every single person who has supported us with individual donations big and small. You did loads to help people who really need it last year. Click the pandas to find out just what you helped us to achieve.
