Police Commissioner Grant for The Daisy Chain Project

Police Commissioner Grant for The Daisy Chain Project

 

 

The Daisy Chain Project has received a grant of £2972.50 from the Police & Crime Commissioner’s Safe Space Sussex Funding Network.

Jade-Shannon Patrick and Hayley Stoner will be joining the Police & Crime Commissioner, Katy Bourne on 22nd August to accept the grant award and explain how the funding will help victims to cope and recover from crime and abuse in Sussex.

Commenting on the funding award Jade-Shannon Patrick said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this grant from the Safe Space Funding Network, which will enable us to recruit more lawyers, advertise and keep our credentials and our website up-to-date so that we have a wider reach to help people.”

Commending The Daisy Chain Project on its successful bid Mrs Bourne said: “The Daisy Chain Project is a great example of an innovative local project that aims to help victims and protect our most vulnerable.

“Since the Funding Network was first opened in February we have had 27 approved providers join. I opened the network for funding applications on the 4th of June and we received 29 applications. Over £550,000 is being made available to these providers over the next two years which will help to enhance our understanding and meet the needs of victims in Sussex.

“I look forward to visiting the team at The Daisy Chain Project and following the progress of their project over the next year.”

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!

Hi all, welcome to the new followers on this sunny day!

A friendly reminder- we will only offer you legal advice if you are the victim of the domestic abuse.

We take this view because we feel it is safer for genuine victims as we cannot prove so that we are sure that another ‘interested’ party won’t jeopardise the case and put the victim in more danger. We will also not divulge any information about any of our clients to anybody who asks us but for in circumstances where the client agrees for us to share information with other services.

If you are concerned about a friend, colleague, or family member, please gently encourage them to contact us for legal advice, or many of the other fabulous organisations out there for more practical advice.

Thank you.

Now the election is over we can announce we have received £8,500.00 in funding from National Lottery Awards For All.

This means that we have been able to fund a mobile phone app, which our app designer is currently designing (more on that in the future but we are very excited!)

And another book!

We have MORE news to share very very soon!

Other people in similar situations as us- what do you do if with no notification a client is half an hour late for an appointment? Do you just accept they aren’t coming, try and contact them, or strike them off so they aren’t a client anymore?

Another really positive result for a client today. #wearekeepingyousafe

If you need our assistance, please note that although we can complete things quickly, court the same or next day is something we are unlikely to be able to help with. We always will if we can, but unfortunately due to court deadlines etc it isn’t always possible

Calling all lawyers - want to make a difference and put something back? Please contact @_TDCP_ and volunteer your services to help victims of domestic abuse in Sussex #VolunteersRock https://t.co/dfVjc0Tj7X
