EY continues to support its long-term charity partner, Safer, with a recent donation of £1,000.
The Domestic Abuse Charity Safer helps people who have and are experiencing domestic abuse in Guernsey.
EY will also be hosting an event at Les Cotils to raise awareness of the work Safer does. On 20 September Safer will be supported in offering a taster training session, offering guidance on how to support someone suffering domestic abuse.
Head of Services at Safer, Naomi Wood: “The Refuge continues to be extremely busy and clients utilising all our services continues to grow year on year.
“Whilst we do receive some States Funding, we do rely on fund raising and the generosity of those businesses within the Community who look to help those in need.
“The money kindly donated by EY will be put towards purchasing security equipment such as window alarms, door wedges, personal alarms and door braces for our clients who remain at home. We are very grateful for the ongoing support that EY are giving to Safer.”
Jo Bold, Assurance Director at EY, said: “On average 1 in 3 women and 1 in 6 men will have experienced domestic abuse in their lifetime. Given these numbers, we are all likely to know someone affected by domestic abuse, both in our personal lives and in the workplace.
“Raising awareness of domestic abuse and the support available in the workplace and the wider community will enable those affected by domestic violence to seek the help they need.”
