Freeva Leicestershire Are Our Chosen Charity

We have some very exciting news here at Hot Source! We have chosen our charity of the year, and it is going to be Freeva! Freeva is a Leicestershire based charity that do so much amazing work every year and we want to help raise awareness of their activities and mission.  Freeva stands for Free from Violence and Abuse and they are a registered charity working towards reducing domestic violence and assault in Leicestershire & Rutland.

Their vision is to help create a society where everyone is free from violence and abuse.  They also offer extensive support for vulnerable people. They do this by:

– Empowering and supporting victims of domestic and sexual violence/abuse

– Challenging abusive behaviours and supporting perpetrators that wish to change

– Breaking the cycle of violence and abuse

– Building cohesive families and communities

Over the course of the next year, we will be working closely with Freeva to help increase awareness of their services, raise donations that help support and fund their services and help get more people on board so we can keep talking about domestic violence and assault.

Their priority is to provide high quality effective support to victims and perpetrators irrespective of their backgrounds. They aim to provide a simplified journey, which can be accessed by anyone who has been affected by domestic abuse and or violence.

We are very excited to be working with Freeva and look forward to helping raise awareness about the services they offer and all the amazing work they do every year.

Freeva also work closely with other agencies to ensure the right support is in place. FreeVA are part of the United Against Violence & Abuse (UAVA) consortium – www.uava.org.uk and some of their services are jointly delivered with ‘Living without Abuse’ (LWA) and Women’s Aid Leicestershire Limited (WALL).
