🌟 #FundraisingFriday Celebration! 🌟

We wanted to highlight again that our Quiz Night on Tuesday was a huge success and say thanks to the incredible support from everyone who participated and donated!

We raised over Β£600! This generous contribution will go towards our Phoenix Group, helping young women aged 14 to 16 who have been affected by sexual violence.

**About Phoenix:**

✨ Promote Empowerment.
✨ Increase confidence and self-esteem in everyday life.
✨ Explore current topics such as healthy relationships and social media.
✨ Develop positive coping strategies.
✨ Get involved in women’s and girls’ rights.
✨ Not feel alone and form friendships.

**Supporting Families:**

GRASAC also recognise the crucial role families play in the healing journey. Alongside Phoenix, we offer an informal, confidential safe space for families of the young person attending. This is an opportunity for families to share a cuppa and:

β˜• Ask questions and seek support from a member of the GRASAC Team.
β˜• Understand how being a victim of sexual violence can impact an individual.
β˜• Discover how they can best support the person they care for, while also looking after themselves.

Stay tuned for more exciting events and opportunities to get involved with GRASAC!
