Barratt and David Wilson homes offers support for Broxtowe Women's Project

As part of its Community Fund scheme, Barratt and David Wilson Homes North Midlands has donated £1,000 to a charity providing support for women suffering from domestic abuse in the borough of Broxtowe.

The donation to Broxtowe Women’s Project will be put towards bespoke services and raising awareness within the local community, helping women to feel empowered so they can live safely and take control of their lives.

Barratt and David Wilson Homes’ Community Fund scheme launched earlier this year and involves donating up to £1,000 a month to charities and organisations in the area.  

Jessica Beasley and Charlotte Proctor, the homebuilder’s Marketing Co-ordinator and Trainee Quantity Surveyor visited the charity representatives to present the cheque.

Charlotte, who nominated the charity, said:

“I chose Broxtowe Women’s Project as it is local to me and often goes unheard of. I also wanted to raise awareness of the work they do and the many people they help.”

Sarah Dagley, Business and Fundraising Manager at Broxtowe Women’s Project, said:

“We were thrilled to receive the news that we were the chosen charity for Barratt and David Wilson Homes. It is great to receive such a donation but also to receive the recognition that larger companies recognise the valuable work that we do.”

Broxtowe Women’s Project was set up in January 2001 to provide information and support services for women experiencing domestic abuse, as well as those who have been a victim of it in the past.

The charity’s outreach workers offer information on housing, benefits, police procedures and legal issues and can also refer women to other agencies if more specialist help is required.

Chris Southgate, Managing Director at Barratt and David Wilson Homes North Midlands, said:

“Broxtowe Women’s Project is such an important charity for many victims of domestic abuse and it was a privilege to be able to offer our support.

“As the country’s largest housebuilder we are committed to creating a positive legacy. We want to lead the industry not just in the quality of the homes and developments we build, but also in our work with charities and good causes throughout the UK.”
