‘Domestic Abuse has been happening for centuries and yet there are more than
one million women who fall victim to abuse every year in the UK –
this figure is rising!’
Speakers Lucy Barker and Lisa Allan who support workers for Newark Women’s Aid
We feel that International Women’s Day is a perfect platform to highlight the issue regarding
domestic abuse as it affects all walks of life.
No one really knows what is going on behind closed doors.
We are here today to recognise the signs and to show empathy to those who suffer,
and to also to hear solutions of how we as women can make a change.
‘ BUT… the reality is not happening – women are not seeking the help
because the help is not there. Traditional structures and strategies are not enough.
We need a new approach, a more honest vision, we need to go back and really
understand the power of women and engage in their self-worth’
To add to the mix we are introducing a couple of speakers who specialise
in alternative therapies that significantly help women
suffering from PTSD - Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
There is help.
When we are stuck in both emotional and physical abusive relationships,
in this grip of victim-hood, the shame is so deeply embedded that it needs help and support clearing it.
INDIGO BRAVE will be talking briefly about working through some of these CORE beliefs
Come and learn much more…

We would like to give you a job to do!
Firstly – of course we would like you to come and support us on such an important day.
Secondly – Please tell your friends or even more importantly people
who could help create change and also those friends you may suspect would benefit from knowing there is support.
Thirdly the Independent Safe Houses rely on the public for donations of practical things not just money.
Please see attached list. All second hand things are welcome – just imagine you had children and had nothing – what would you need!
East Bridgford Hill has a long history of being quietly or even politically involved
with the rights of the child and human rights and conservation. Emma is continuing this and has invited us to bring awareness to this silent appalling crime – where not only the victim is hurt but family and friends all around and even the protagonist!
East Bridgford Hill would like to celebrate the power of women in the name of her
late mother Hon Mrs. Patricia Robens.
