Please vote for us!

The Lloyds Bank Community Fund is a national initiative for the public to vote for their local charity or cause. The fund states that “we believe in helping the communities we’re part of to thrive, that’s why our Community Fund provides grants to local good causes across the UK. More than 600,000 people will benefit from the 2014 Community Fund.”

Southall Black Sisters has a long standing track record of helping minority women and children escape family abuse in Southall and the borough of Ealing. Additionally we assist women from other boroughs and our work also helps women nationally and internationally.

This award would help us focus on helping children and mothers escape and recover from child abuse or neglect, domestic and sexual violence, forced marriage, female genital mutilation and honour violence. The award will help us with giving advice, advocacy, counselling, parenting skills, English language and homework classes.
