WHAT WE OFFER
In some GCP houses we are beginning to provide respite rooms for women in emergency circumstances. These rooms can be accommodated for between 3 and 6 months to provide a short term safe place for women subjected to homelessness, recovery, respite from domestic violence, interim care, acute crisis and mental health complexities.
But in order to provide these respite rooms we are dependent upon sponsors and sponsorship. In reality, it costs £500 to cover rent, utilities and food every single month to provide a safe and secure room for a vulnerable resident to begin to piece their life together again. This is where you can help out. If you would like to be a sponsor for one of the rooms monthly, bi-monthly or as a one of contribution please set up an standing order directly to our GCP account. An example this can be £10 a month or £50 as one off to just contribute to the running of these rooms.
