Gilgal has been supporting women and children in Birmingham for 26 years.
They are a refuge begun by two churches who saw the need for this kind of support. When a woman is faced with abuse of various kinds, it takes a great deal of bravery to walk away.
Gilgal determined from the outset that they would have support 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Despite financial constraints they have managed to maintain these supports.
Finances are always an issue and this has become increasingly so in recent years. Since the Council halved their Supporting people Grant in December 2019, they have been scrambling to cover our core costs.
We wanted to support Gilgal Birmingham to help women rebuild their lives and get on their feet again.
Our donation will help Gilgal with their refuge running costs, allowing them to continue helping so many people in our community.
We’re proud to support such an amazing charity at such a difficult time.
