We are using this incredible opportunity to fundraise for a very special project. Over the past two years we have been reaching at-risk people in communities across the UK with our Citz National Residencies programme. Now we want to bring together homeless and vulnerable women for our first ever female-only residency, Empowering Women.
Women make up 26% of homeless service clients and are likely to have greater levels of mental illness due to physical and sexual abuse.
Through this creative residency we aim to develop work with and for women, to encourage, empower and support them to move on to more positive futures. And you can play a vital part in making this happen.
For every £1 donated, we receive £2, so please give what you can and help us improve homeless and at-risk women's confidence, employability and wellbeing.
If you want to join our Christmas Challenge and pledge your support for the project, double your donation here.
What an incredible start to #GivingTuesday! We've reached 25% of our target already. Thank you so much for everyone who has supported us so far. The money raised will go to support our first ever women-only Citz Residency.
