Help Us to Help Those Affected by Domestic Abuse
As a traditional family run business we have continually strived to support our local community, where we live as well as work, in any way we can.
Therefore we are pleased to be supporting the Kent based charity, Oasis.
Oasis has been delivering services to people experiencing domestic abuse over 22 years. During that time their services have expanded along with their expertise but their focus on improving safety and rebuilding lives has been steadfast.
Oasis delivers services in Thanet, Dover, North Kent and Medway to adults and children both in refuge and in the community and they are building a dedicated approach to not only intervening, but also preventing these issues in the future.
It is for that reason that we are proud that our community focus for the start of 2021 is to fundraise for Oasis through sponsoring one of their care packages for every Service Cover Plan we sell.
Domestic abuse is a pattern of behaviour that uses power to control a person with whom the abuser has a close relationship. It’s about someone you know trying to control your life. Abuse isn't just physical; it is controlling, coercive or threatening behaviour, violence or abuse. This includes (but is not limited to):
- Psychological abuse
- Physical abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Financial abuse
- Emotional abuse
If you feel intimidated by or frightened of someone you have a relationship with, to the point that you feel that you have to change your behaviour, you may be experiencing domestic violence.
If you or your family are in immediate danger please call the police on 999. In a non-emergency situation you can call Kent police on 101.

Why A Care Package Makes Such A Difference
Often when escaping domestic abuse, women and children have to leave all their belongings behind. Therefore a care parcel is provided to women and children who enter the refuge or for when they move on to a new home.
These parcels could include new toys and games, toiletries or clothes and the key essentials needed when moving to a new home.
