EDAN Lincs Ending Domestic Abuse Now, a domestic abuse charity offering emergency refuge accommodation and outreach advice and support to people experiencing and fleeing domestic abuse, have recently been awarded funding from the Councillor Grant Scheme. This is a joint funding project and a total of £3,250 has been awarded from Councillors Neill Hastie, Katie Chalmers, Jonathan Noble, Paul Skinner and Anton Dani. The funding will enable the group to continue to provide support and advice to people in Lincolnshire whose first language is not English and who require an interpreter. In their application they stated that: “To have additional funding would help us help victims that come to us with domestic abuse with translation services - to help communicate with them about their situation and what help might be available to them, as well as offer our S.A.F.E course, that helps victims regain their confidence, understand domestic abuse and signs for the future relationships to help them to re-enter community life again.”
We provide 3 day emergency food parcels for those in need. You will usually be referred by an agency that will issue you a food voucher. We have tried to make our premises a more welcoming environment with the addition of table cloths, pot plants and music. Upon entering the premises, you will be asked if you would like a hot drink and food. One of the volunteers will sit and chat with you. They may be able to signpost you to agencies that can help you. In addition to the food parcels you will receive, you will be asked if you would like some toiletries and a few additional items such as pet food. Click the picture for more details.
