Swindon Sisters Alliance was created after domestic violence caused heartache in a local family. After her sister died, Emma took action to help people recover from this crime.
She has set up a new charity shop in Swindon town centre to helps raise money. This helps to pay for holiday retreats for people who have suffered from domestic violence, or are recovering from it.
Lovingly named after Emma’s sister, their first project is called ‘Julie’s Haven’. It’s a new mobile home in Somerset. By offering it to domestic abuse survivors, they hope to bring happiness and a break for people away from their challenges back home.
The charity goal is to prevent people from long-term effects of domestic violence. They have a passion to help people by giving them confidence, empowerment and reduce the effects of domestic abuse.
