Guernsey’s domestic abuse charity, Safer, took a group of children who are being supported by their KIDVA service (Kids Independent Domestic Violence Advisory) on an overnight trip to Herm last week.
They were also accompanied by their Mum’s which made the trip extra special.
“The trip was a great opportunity for the children to have some much-needed support, fun and therapy. We were blessed with good weather for the trip so managed to spend a lot of time on the beach doing activities, playing games and creating some fantastic beach art,” said Safer’s Chairwoman Fiona Naftel.
“It was a lovely trip which the children really enjoyed and benefited from. It was made possible by the generosity of some local companies and organisations including The Evolution Group, Herm Island, The Mermaid Tavern, Guernsey Arts and Guernsey Welfare Service. I’d like to say a big thank you to them all for making it possible”.
The Evolution Group’s CEO, Matt Warren, said: “We’re delighted to have been able to support Safer’s trip to Herm. They’re our chosen charity for this year and this is just one example of the brilliant and crucial work they do in Guernsey. It looks as though it was a very special trip.”
Safer supports anyone who experiences domestic abuse, with the goal of ending domestic abuse in Guernsey and establishing a society where domestic abuse is unacceptable.
