Broxtowe Women’s Project are just one organisation who have been nominated after the team worked quickly to adapt so that they could continue to support Broxtowe families affected by domestic abuse in alternative ways.

They have held 16 virtual coffee mornings for families, 2 virtual walks, started an online Freedom programme and have a waiting list for the second and the team have increased their hours to allow them to provide a Monday to Friday service, which previously wasn’t offered.

The team have worked extremely hard to ensure Broxtowe’s communities have been supported throughout the pandemic as well as supporting the #YouAreNotAlone campaign.

Beeston Rylands Community Association are another example of providing community support for Broxtowe. They have been packing and delivering twice weekly food packs to local residents and are now helping over 240 households.

They have worked with the Head Teachers of local schools to ensure they identify and deliver to those families in need. They have also done some amazing outreach work with Broxtowe’s younger residents, as they have worked with Sport England and Active Notts to provide drop offs of sport equipment for young people for activities at home.
