Friends of Trust House Lancashire

July 10th, 2018 by

We are lucky to have a group of people who support and fund-raise Trust House Lancashire.

Friends of Trust House began when Zoe, a volunteer since the Charity began in 2014, asked if she could help with raising funds for Trust House Lancashire. From the involvement she had with Trust House Lancashire, over the past years, she was aware of the need for this specialised service in the local community and for the funding necessary for it to continue.

The Friends group aim is to raise money to help support Trust House Lancashire. This can be done with local events but also in applying to trusts for grants. There is also an opportunity for raising awareness of Trust House Lancashire and the services it provides. The Friends group has so far run 2 stalls at local gala days raising £260 and also had input into the Charity Ball which raised a brilliant £10,000.

Zoe started initially with some of her friends and other interested people have now joined the group. They even have their own logo incorporating the Trust House logo and based on the ‘elephant in the room’, sexual abuse being something that is generally not talked about.  They will always welcome anyone who would like to help, any ideas for raising funds, networking and any links to other interesting individuals and organisations.

Latest News!

Friends of Trust House had a stall at Lostock Hall Carnival and raised £140.50

We are at Doctor Doctor Family Fun Event on Saturday 21st July 11am to 4pm

Dardsley, Brownedge Road, Lostock Hall, Preston

If you or anyone is interested in joining the group, please contact us on [email protected] or by contacting the Trust House office 01772 825288.

Lightening the Shadow of Abuse Survey

June 13th, 2018 by

Can you help us Gather Information about your Experiences

The team at King’s are keen to hear the view of female survivors of childhood sexual abuse who have had children and those who have not yet, but think they may like to at some stage.

The Survivors’ Trust has been working with a research team from King’s College, London led by Dr Elsa Montgomery in the production of an online learning resource. This resource will help prepare female survivors of childhood sexual abuse for pregnancy and birth.

The team has already conducted focus groups but is keen to hear the views of more survivors.

It is now possible to participate either by completing a questionnaire or by speaking to one of the research team by telephone or WhatsApp. Please be assured that confidentiality and anonymity for participants is of utmost importance to us.  More information is available via the following link to the Survivors’ Trust Website.

http://thesurvivorstrust.org/news/lightening-the-shadow-of-abuse/

We know that pregnancy and birth are times of great change for any woman but they can be particularly challenging for survivors of abuse. At present, there are no resources that can help them to think through the issues, learn of the experiences of other survivors and prepare themselves for the emotions of pregnancy, birth and motherhood – including the potential resurfacing of feelings related to their abuse.

This work is funded by the Wellcome Trust and is an exciting opportunity for researchers and survivors to work together to produce the much-needed resource.

 

Any further information is available from [email protected] telephone 020 7848 3632
