What is domestic abuse?
Over 1 in 4 people (source: Women’s Aid) will experience domestic abuse between the age of 16 and 59 and the vast majority are women.
Domestic abuse can be financial, psychological, physical, emotional or sexual – and there is no excuse for it.
Understanding the difference between domestic abuse and a healthy relationship could save someone’s life one day.
” Safe place to share what I have experienced and not be judged.“
“The best thing about the Safe in Sussex programme was being able to talk about what has happened and being understood and listened to.“
“I have learnt not to be harsh on myself but to talk kindly to myself as if talking to a friend or child. I have come a long way!“
The 1st Safe in Sussex Community Gingerbread House Event took place last Saturday at St Oscar Romero School in Goring by Sea, with a wonderful selection of houses on show. This year’s Gingerbread House Fun raised an amazing £3,280.
This will be the 4th year of having gingerbread house fun. After the amazing success of selling 613 houses last year, Safe in Sussex wants to take the event to another dimension. They are adding 3 more competitions and hosting a public Gingerbread House Event to show...
This year Safe in Sussex and Brighton Cakes partnered up to offer St Oscar Romero Catholic Secondary School in Worthing a team Challenge of getting the Year 10 Students to plan and design a Gingerbread House for the year 7’s to build and decorate for Safe in Sussex’s Gingerbread House Decorating event in December this year.
Safe In Sussex receives 14% of its funding from the government. The rest is through grants, fundraising events, donations, legacies and corporate sponsorship.
Demand for our services grows every year and finding the money to fund our vital services gets tougher all the time.
We are fortunate to receive some grant funding from Children in Need, the National Lottery and local authority organisations, but we are constantly looking for new ways to attract funding.
