Aviva Community Fund - Leapfrog Domestic Abuse Project

Well, it's that time again - the Aviva Community Fund scheme is open and we really need your help!

As you may already know, our LeapFrog service supports individuals in situations of domestic abuse and we would like to be able help more people to improve the quality of their lives in the future and #SayNo to domestic abuse.

No person should be abused by a partner; let alone a child having to witness this and the impact it can have on a young mind.

Merseyside Police figures showed officers responded to 6,893 calls of domestic abuse in Wirral in 2014, and there have been five domestic abuse murders in Wirral since 2012. This will undoubtedly have a profound effect on children who witness these harrowing scenes. This has potentially long term effects on children and, at present, the Leapfrog scheme is the only established project on Wirral to allow them to cope with what they have witnessed and /or experienced.

Without a statutory obligation to provide such a service, we believe it is still an essential service to change the acceptance of domestic abuse for our younger generation.

Your votes will help us to secure funding and allow us to continue a very worthy cause which many people tend to shy away from discussing, acting upon or simply do not realise what a hidden danger this is to young people.

Additionally, it will raise the profile of what is often a hidden and unheard of danger and let us support our young people and help them to keep their childhood; something which the majority of us take for granted.

Leapfrog is the only Wirral-based programme that's run for women and children who have experienced domestic abuse.

Leapfrog is a safe space for children and young people to talk about their experiences.

We support both women and children and re build relationship and trust again.

Voting takes less than 3 minutes and could help change a child's life forever.

The decorations and tree are already up in Pacific Road’s function room and a range of commercial cooking equipment is being brought in for everyone to prepare and cook lunch, assisted by staff from No. 4 Pacific Road, the Progress to Excellence bistro. Followed by festive entertainment, dancing, raffles and bingo.

Involve Northwest CEO, Justine Molyneux, said:“The Christmas party is a day we look forward to all year and it’s a privilege to be able to do this for the older people in our community. Many of them don’t get out much so, once they’ve had their lunch, we pack the afternoon with plenty of fun and good cheer.”
