Stop and Think

Great to see so many people including children getting involved in raising money for charity today. Unfortunately, many small local charities are really struggling in these hard economic times and can find it difficult to get support from big national organisations. If you are thinking of making a donation tonight maybe consider could you give directly to a charity you know instead?

Meet Lisa

My name is Lisa Winnett and I am a Blaenau Gwent County Borough Councillor. I fully support the excellent work and support that Phoenix Domestic Abuse give to victims, especially how their dedicated team of staff help people to better their lives through long term support.  Many people do not realise the intervention work that Phoenix also carries out with young people who are showing signs of controlling and abusive behaviour, plus they also work with perpetrators to try and help to change a person’s abusive behaviour and stop them from abusing others in the future. I am more than happy to help and support Phoenix with the work that they do, as they do provide a lifesaving service to many people when they are at the lowest point of their lives due to abuse, their work is a much-valued service.
