Every year Self injury Support offers a confidential, non-judgemental space to thousands of women across the UK who use self injury – often due to traumatic experiences such as domestic or sexual violence, bullying, mental health issues and abuse. Through phone, text and email we support women to talk about how they feel and let them know about other services which could support them. We also provide online self-help tools and train across the UK – we have run courses for mental health staff, council call centres, schools, housing support organisations and anyone else who is interested!
You may be aware that we along with other charities have experienced progressive cuts to our funding over the last several years. It is becoming more and more difficult to provide the support we would to women who use our services. We are currently facing a large shortfall in covering the cost of office space and other basic infrastructure. We desperately need your support to continue to survive in our current format.
We are asking people support us in one (or more!) of the following ways:
One off donations: Text SISU14 £10 (or any amount you can give less or more) to 70070
Signing Up for Regular Donations: We are aiming to sign up 100 people to donate £2 or what they can afford to us on a monthly basis – contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 0117 927 9600 for more details
Doing a fundraising event for us: In the past people have run marathons, baked cakes and dressed up to raise donations for us – anything you fancy doing we’d love to hear about – contact email@example.com or 0117 927 9600 to let us know about your ideas
You can also donate to us directly through:
Just Giving: https://www.justgiving.com/sisupport/
