Corporate Sponsorship

Our ambition for 2017 is to continue to strengthen Rock Against Violence and to raise £40,000 for Solace Women’s Aid. The funds we procure through this flagship event help to support Solace’s main objectives: To raise awareness for the charity and raise essential funds needed to continue the charity’s vital services.

Achieving our goal means we will, in part, rely on the generosity and goodwill of those willing to fundraise for, and donate to, our event. Corporate Sponsorship forms an essential part of this. The table below gives an idea of just how far a donation can go.

£1,000 Buys basic personal items for 40 women and children who arrive at our refuges with nothing of their own.
£4,000 Provides childcare in our refuges throughout the year, to enable mothers affected by domestic violence to access vital support services, such as advocacy and counselling.
£10,000 Trains 4 members of staff as ‘Independent Domestic Violence Advocates’ (IDVA), so they can help ensure women are safe and get the support they need.
£40,000 Could underpin Solace’s infrastructure, to help us meet the current unprecedented increase in demand for our services. It could cover the costs of our counselling services for 65  women, helping them to recover from domestic and sexual abuse
