Exeter based charity, Stop Abuse For Everyone (SAFE) has been awarded a grant of £3,000, which will help to support people affected by domestic abuse and violence.
Ending the cycle of abuse
SAFE are passionate about ending both mental and physical abuse and have been working towards this goal for over 40 years. The charity’s 12 staff and 40 volunteers work in the community, in schools and with social services, holding courses and offering one to one support.
Abuse can affect any or all the members of a household and helping to eradicate this controlling behaviour is at the heart of what SAFE does; centring on goals, strengths and needs of those effected and help them regain control of their lives.
Devonshire Freemasons visit SAFE
Provincial Grand Charity Steward, Reuben Ayres visited SAFE to present Jacinta Wainwright their CEO with a certificate celebrating the grant of £3000.
“Any way we can help in protecting families and individuals within the community can only be beneficial. We are as passionate about ending abuse as the staff of SAFE and we hope this small grant goes some way to enabling them to continue their good work.”
Jacinta Wainwright said “We are very grateful to the Devonshire Freemasons for this award. SAFE is a grassroots local charity and this money will help us to continue to deliver vital recovery services to children and their parents in all parts of Devon. It is only by working together that we will succeed in achieving our goals and the support of the Freemason is most welcome.
