2 years ago A Way Out celebrated the outcome of a successful grant application. This specific funding supports our Blossom Service created from feedback and ideas shared by clients of our established and successful Liberty Service. Whilst grateful for the intensive and highly effective support we provide, these women shared a wish to have met A Way Out much earlier in their lives – BEFORE circumstances led to exploitation, destructive addictions and a chaotic existence…
Our Blossom service, born from these wishes, supports and advocates for today’s vulnerable and at risk younger women in our local area. Blossom provides intervention and prevention support in their young lives NOW.
Our Blossom staff are a hard working team, dedicated to enabling and empowering young women to make real and lasting changes for a positive future. We work alongside young women ensuring that they are not facing challenges alone, we share in their progress – celebrate with them in their victories and encourage them through disappointments. Blossom is supported by trained volunteers who generously share their time to help facilitate our drop-in activities and outreach sessions.
Today we are celebrating another answer to prayer – a need uncovered by our intensive work with this younger group of women. Young, lonely, isolated and vulnerable women with disabilities can be at particular risk of exploitation, however, thanks to the generous support of a local foundation we are now be able to offer these particular young women skilled, specialist one to one support as part of our Blossom service.
We are currently recruiting to this specialist post – take a look at our website for further details and where you will also find information about other ways you can support the work of A Way Out.
