Breathing Space Report
Breathing Space was a women-centred project, funded by the Tampon Tax Fund through the Department of Digital Culture Media and Sport. It aimed to reduce distress and the harmful impact of domestic abuse on women and their children. The focus of this project was support for women who have suffered complex trauma and are experiencing difficulties in their lives as a result. WHM provided safe space for women to “stabilize”, helping women to access internal and external resources and develop stress management skills and so address the critical first stage of trauma recovery.
The Key Report
The Key project received Big Lottery funding to continue its work in 2017, aiming to work with disadvantaged girls and young women at high risk of abuse aged between 13 and 25 within the Leeds area. The project was aimed at young women and girls at risk of violent, abusive or unhealthy relationships, whether this be at home or in their personal relationships with friends and/or partners and covered a wide variety of topics including warning signs of unhealthy/abusive relationships, boundary setting, consent, grooming and sexting as well as self-esteem, confidence and emotional well-being.
