Police Commissioner funds The Daisy Chain Project to write childrens’ book

Police Commissioner funds The Daisy Chain Project to write childrens' book

The Office of the Police Commissioner has kindly funded The Daisy Chain Project to write a book for child victims and witnesses of domestic abuse.

Thanks to the generosity of the OPCC, an in-store collection in Waitrose, and donors on a Just Giving page, ‘The Garden Broom’ should be out in the later part of 2019. The book is by Francesca Reilly and Jade-Shannon Patrick and focuses on the range of emotions a child might feel in a domestic abuse environment and what the child should do in those situations. It is targeted at ages 3-7 years.

The book will be available for purchase on Amazon and some copies will be given out to schools, libraries, and other charities dealing with domestic abuse victims.

Thank you to Core Electrics for fixing our lights and to Worthing & Adur Council for sending a team of DIY whizzes to help us paint our office. More pics will come when we’ve done the finishing touches, but how is that for a progress shot?!

We wanted to make visiting a lawyer a friendly, and non-fusty experience and our office is completely child friendly.

Snippets of the office revamp so far... we can’t wait to share it with you when it’s all finished on (hopefully) Friday when our lovely DIY team come.

After that it’s just a case of fixing the lights and ordering a new sofa and renovation is complete 😄

Hi all, we are closed on Friday 31st May and will not be answering calls or making appointments on this day.

This is because we have a lovely team of people from Adur Homes coming to decorate our office and make it nicer for our clients. We will still be responding to emails sporadically, if we are not too covered in paint!

Hello all! Just to let you know we are working a little slower than normal due to our recent press coverage- we got an influx!

We have a little queue system in place so please bear with us- we are always happy to help where we can.

We also have recruited at least one, but possibly more, shiny new lawyers!

Stay tuned for more news 🙂

We’re fresh out of a team briefing at Worthing Job Centre in which we worked with Safe in Sussex to inform the Job Centre Staff about what they can do if they suspect one of their clients is in an abusive relationship.

We were told that with joint claims under Universal Credit, it is unfortunately possible for an abuser to exercise further control over their victim.

We believe education is the key to prevention regarding domestic abuse, and to recognise the signs can lead to early intervention.

If your organisation needs any information or briefings on the law surrounding domestic abuse, please give us a shout- we are more than happy to offer this service!

We've just received #NationalLottery funding! Thank you to everyone who plays The National Lottery for supporting us.

Find out more on the @TNLComFund website: https://t.co/8GMvebmkzs https://t.co/wM99oni3sl

We were wondering if any other domestic abuse organisations would benefit from leaflets explaining the law in an accessible way for their clients? We can make it happen if so!

❤️❤️ THANK YOU https://t.co/7dIDjv5E28
