The Reclaim Project (formerly The Women’s Project & Healing Hearing) was established in 1993 and provides free counselling of up to 10 sessions to women and men affected by domestic abuse living in North Somerset. Support is provided to people who are no longer in a relationship with their abuser. Reclaim will work with clients to enable them to explore their experience and help them to move forwards to reclaim their lives.
Since moving to VANS in 2019, the Reclaim project has become firmly embedded in the charity with the team of coordinators and self-employed counsellors becoming part of the team.
The current programme is funded by the Big Lottery until 2021, which will enable over 200 individuals access vital life-changing counselling support through 2021.
With known increased demand for support specifically for survivors of Domestic Abuse, VANS is working with other local providers to identify gaps in the current offer and identify additional funding to put in place support where required in North Somerset.
The counsellors at Reclaim offer:
– a free confidential service in a variety of venues across North Somerset
– advice and direction to the right agency who can further help and support clients.
For people who are living with their abuser, Next Link North Somerset may be able to offer you support:
