‘Team work makes the dream work’, ‘alone we can do a little, together we can do much’ - it is this very team spirit that enables organisations such as A Way Out to strive towards our aim; - to engage, empower and equip vulnerable and excluded women, families and young people to live lives free from harm, abuse and exploitation and to reduce life limiting choices and behaviour.
An issue faced by the women engaged with our Liberty and Blossom service is that of ISOLATION. These women have had their trust in others stripped away as a result of their experiences of abuse and exploitation. They can feel alone with a loss of strength and can struggle to find a vision of hope for their future. Isolation can also be an issue for some of the young people we support through our Youth & Families Services.
A Way Out’s staff team , supported by our team of dedicated volunteers, work to deliver our aim through evening outreach, daytime drop-ins and group sessions – together in unity we enable life changing things to happen. This teamwork enables and encourages our clients to rebuild their trust in others, to build up their own strength and to see their own positive life vision.
We are currently striving to recruit more volunteers for our Youth and Blossom Services if you or anyone you know of anyone who may be interested please ask that they get in touch with us or go to our website and download an application form. All it takes to join our teams is a quick interview, 4 short training sessions and a DBS check!
Easter is fast approaching too and we will be collecting chocolate Easter Eggs to present to our clients - it would be great if you would consider donating an egg or two!!
