Detailed description

LGBTQ Friendly Organisation


We're an Outreach Community Group based in Gloucester. We support women all over Gloucestershire - 20 years old and older. Our mission is to be the voice for women who have suffered from domestic abuse. We run events throughout the year to bring awareness and to support other community groups and local charities.

We believe peer mentor support is a way for our clients to open up about their struggles and mental health. Our research and resource support are 100% Client led. Our clients are encouraged to advise us what support they require as we tailor to their needs.

  • Must have experienced an abusive relationship with a partner that was either verbally, physically, sexually, or emotionally abusive at some point in your life.
  • Must have been separated from abusive relationship for 2 years or more
  • Must be willing to commit to a mentorship relationship with a client.
  • Provide support and empowerment.
  • Mentors are matched with women who have been recovering from their abusive relationship.
  • Value the client as a person
  • Develop mutual trust and respect
  • Maintain confidentiality
  • Listen both to what is being said and how it is being said
  • Help the client solve their own problem, rather than give direction
  • Focus on the client's development
  • Provide guidance, motivation, emotional support
  • Assist with setting goals, developing contacts, and identifying resources
