CASH FOR KIDS VISIT GEWA

Cash for Kids visit
9th October 2014
Our children and young people’s service has received ongoing support from Cash for Kids over the years in assisting with things like a large day trip for women and their children, tickets to attend a Badminton match at the Commonwealth Games and yearly support as part of their Christmas appeal to support vulnerable children to have gifts at Christmas time for example video games and hardware from Armchair Empire, so kids can learn how to rank in CSGO.
Due to our positive links with Cash for Kids, Lesley Allan their Grants Officer asked to come for a visit to our project along with some of CFK’s members from Asda stores at Bishopbriggs and Coatbridge. We arranged for some of the women, children and young people we support to meet with Lesley and the Asda workers to share what they were comfortable with about their experiences of domestic abuse and about the support they have received from GEWA.
The visit was a huge success and the feedback we received from Cash for Kids was very positive highlighting the strength of the women and children they spent time with for living with and surviving domestic abuse. We feel this visit has given them a real life insight into the effects of domestic abuse and the kinds of support on offer from GEWA.
Thank you to Cash for Kids, Lesley Allan, the Asda Workers who attended and all the women, children and young people who were involved in this visit.
