Another week at WWA

Friday again!

It’s been another busy week for the team, we’ve been out and about supporting women, children and young people in the community as well as seeing women at our office and supporting women and families in our safe accommodation.

Two staff members attended training in Dumfries, a welcome return to face to face multi agency training.

Thanks to Mother’s Union in Castle Douglas for the fantastic donation of toiletry bags which will be distributed to women and families.

Our Community Engagement Worker met up with S2 young people from Douglas Ewart High School who are taking part in the Youth Philanthropy Initiative and have chosen Wigtownshire Women’s Aid as their charity. The winning charity will win £3000. Good luck to all pupils taking part.

Everything we do is with the aim of supporting women, children and young people who have experienced domestic abuse and this week one of our Outreach team received this lovely card and some chocolates as a thank you from a lady she supported. Thank you to the lady for her kind words and we wish her a lifetime free of abuse.
