SISTER & CO. SKIN FOOD IN SUPPORT OF SOLACE WOMEN'S AID

SISTER & CO. SKIN FOOD IN SUPPORT OF SOLACE WOMEN'S AID

This March saw Mother's Day AND International Women's Day and we were delighted to partner with the London-based Solace Women's Aid, a charity devoted to helping women and children at risk of domestic abuse and violence.

Solace provides a safe home, creates safe spaces and offers a range of therapeutic services for 11,000 women and children every year. 

10% of all our proceeds for March were donated to their cause - there never was a better reason to indulge in skincare. Look out for plenty more initiatives supporting Solace as the year goes on. 

We spoke to Rhiannon on the advice line and asked her a few questions about her experience of working for the charity. 

1. How has working for Solace Women's Aid changed your life?
Working at Solace has been incredible. It is an extremely rewarding job and allows me to make a real difference to women’s lives - I can empower them and help them change their future. It inspires me to keep working on the front line.

2. Is Solace more in demand now than when it was founded 41 years ago?
There is more awareness these days of domestic violence, which means more women are reaching out - although this puts pressure on our services, it is fantastic that they are seeking support.

3. What do you think are the biggest challenges that Solace faces today?
The biggest challenges we face is the reduced access to funding, especially for
specialised support for certain groups of harder to reach women, such as Eastern European women, who are often marginalised and have nowhere else to turn.

5. If someone is reading this and wants to help, what should they do?
If you want to do more, and help more women affected by domestic violence, you can volunteer at your local domestic violence charity like Solace. And tell your friends about us - it could make a life-saving difference to someone.
