Black And Blue is a registered charity set up to find ways to promote non-violence to anyone who will listen and help as many people affected by domestic violence and abuse as we can.
We may be small but we achieve big things with very little money, no paid staff and few resources. We are very proud that last year, just over 90% of our income went directly to people who needed it.
Our focus is to send vital items to providers of services that protect adults and children. Last year we sent out thousands of items of toiletries, cleaning products, crockery, cutlery and towels.
We also want to thank the wonderful staff working in domestic abuse services across the U.K who help us to get stuff to their residents. You are amazing. We mosly work with registered charity refuge and safe house staff to identify what they need most and try and get it to them as soon as we can and without long applications or forms.
As part of our Safe Nights project we refresh the bedding in several refuges. We also did some other stuff, such as helping pay for high risk victims to flee and funding safe pre-paid phones.
A lot of our income comes from people donating small amounts online or at events held to support us. We also want to thank our patron Beccy Owen. who helps us when they can.
Last year we did the best we could with the funds we had nd we helped more services, more people and sent out more goods than ever before. We were helped by the Wakeham Trust and we really thank them. We also want to thank In Kind Direct who have helped us to do so much more with our funds.
