Domestic Abuse Charity gets £20,000
A Bournemouth-based charity which helps people suffering from domestic violence and abuse has won a £20,000 grant to cover core costs.
The Butterfly Foundation will use the money from Lloyds TSB Foundation to pay the manager's salary and accommodation, helping the charity to expand into new regions.
It currently works in Bournemouth, where it is based; Dorset, and parts of Wiltshire, raising awareness and education of domestic violence and abuse.
The charity also delivers services to hundreds of vulnerable individuals and families in immediate crisis, suffering from the long-term effects of domestic violence and abuse.
Julie Johns, creative director at the Butterfly Foundation, said:
''The charity has grown quickly in the past couple of years and there is a real need for us to expand our services and reach people in other areas. This grant will help us to effectively run our charity and continue to organise workshops.''
The Lloyds TSB Foundation for England and Wales provides grants to local, regional and national charities with 70% of grants awarded to cover core costs such as rent and salaries.
Trevor Smale, the foundation's grant manager for Devon, Cornwall and Somerset, said:
''Our grants programme is needs-driven and core costs are vital for charities to operate and continue the successful work they do. We are one of only a few grant makers to fund core costs and believe this funding will provide lasting change and benefits for charity beneficiaries.''
