VOICES Impact Report 2021

In a tumultuous year, we continued to provide services to all our existing and new clients. The VOICES Impact Report for 2020/2021 is now available.

VOICES aims to become a centre of excellence for domestic abuse recovery, providing training and consultation that is informed by lived experience and longterm support work.

Our model of integrated, accessible and tailored support plays a key role in building stronger relationships in the community; enabling people to fulfil their potential by working to safely address issues at the earliest possible stage, with peer-led and group programmes to combat social isolation and aid reintegration in working and social life. VOICES’ integrated support and focus on recovery has proven effective in transforming self-confidence and addressing the root causes of mental health problems associated with Domestic and Sexual Abuse.

Between March 2020 and March 2021, we supported about 160 individual survivors and victims and their families, continuing to provide high-quality, effective and bespoke services in the community to support individuals, their families, and the wider community.

We will continue to develop a unique, women-only safe space in Bath (alongside advice and signposting for anyone in need), increasing options for partnership with other organisations to the benefit of local people and their community, and supporting their wellbeing needs as society emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic.
