The Gamesys Foundation is providing £150k over two years to support the Women’s Aid Live Chat service. The funding will enable the service to expand by increasing the number of Live Chat workers on the sessions and providing them with equipment and support. Since launching the service in November 2019, the demand regularly outstrips capacity, and the Gamesys Foundation is proud to continue to support Women’s Aid with the ongoing development of this lifesaving service.
Farah Nazeer, Chief Executive of Women’s Aid, said:
“Our huge thanks to the Gamesys Foundation for the further support they have given us at Women’s Aid, to be able to ensure that even more women can get help by reaching out to our Live Chat service. This vital funding will allow us to grow the service and build our capacity, which means that more women living with domestic abuse will be able to access support. We know that the support we give can save lives, and we thank everyone at the Gamesys Foundation for this much needed funding.”
