Support and counselling for rape and sexual violence victims and survivors in Bedfordshire
The Hope Programme is a registered charity, with a helpline and support services for people aged over 13 years who have suffered rape and other forms of sexual violence, including childhood sexual abuse. Our services are available to non offending family members, partners and carers.
The Hope Programme have been awarded Big Lottery funding for 2017 -2020. The grant is funding new service delivery manager and administrator/volunteer co-ordinator posts plus general running costs.
Margaret Barker, the CEO said. ” Thanks to the Big Lottery we will be able to ensure that victims and survivors of sexual violence in Bedfordshire receive the help they want, when they want it. We anticipate more than 400 people over three years will be supported to cope, recover and move on as far as possible to better lives. We will be able to look at new services, such as coaching and build on our strengths.
Thank you very much to the Big Lottery’s Reaching Communities Team for acknowledging our work and the critical role of rape and sexual violence support centres, this funding will make a BIG difference.”
