AIM Northwest is a new Charity registered in 2020. We support individuals and families impacted by domestic abuse living in the North West of England.
Our aim is support and empower people to make better lives for themselves.
Covid-19 has no doubt impacted many families during these tough times, which makes our support services even more important than ever. The lockdown has unfortunately restricted our ability to fundraise in the local community as we would usually do.
We've now launched our 'Peer Mentor Service' which is now supporting victims of domestic abuse. Like any charity, we need help to fund the valuable services we provide and this week we launched our new online charity SHOP, take a peek!
As they say 'home is where the heart is' and we desperately need a place we can call home for our team of volunteers. The office space will provide us with a base that we can effectively run our support services from and a place we can operate our online charity shop from. The aim of this crowd funder campaign is to raise vital funds to cover our office costs. Having our own space will make such a difference to so many people in so many ways.
1) It would provide facilities to recruit, train and mentor more volunteers for our domestic abuse 'Peer Mentor Service' which is currently operating a waiting list.
2) Provide us with space to process and operate our online shop and generate a valuable revenue stream.
3) Most importantly provide us with a safe and confidential space for those who need our support. Support can be a range of things from simply having a place to stop by for a cup of tea and get some emotional support, or for some practical help to address needs around housing, finance or employment concerns.
At the moment all work is done remotely or in community meeting spaces. By donating to our office space fundraiser you'll be helping to provide a safe place to support and a means to raise important funds for the Charity.
From the Board of Trustees, Directors and Volunteers we thank you in advance for your support.
