Here at The Crossing Point our aim is to not only support those who are or have suffered abuse, but to help stop it.  Abuse takes many forms. It goes on behind closed doors. Physical and sexual abuse can be inflicted in ways that are hidden from the outside world. Emotional abuse and financial control leave no obvious wounds. For many, life becomes an endless cycle of abuse endured in silence – whilst their abusers remain the masters of disguise.

 

There are countless people that need help due to past or present abuse. The programmes that we run offer hope, support and healing – they’re making a difference, helping restore lives that have been wrecked by abuse.  There will be people in your community in need of this type of support. Please consider inviting us to come and deliver a recovery programme.

In order to help stop abuse, everyone needs firstly to be aware of it, how and why it happens and what is going on around them. Raising awareness is something we feel very strongly about. If we’re going to tackle abuse then it’s important to have an understanding of it, to recognise the signs and know how to engage with someone going through it and how to help.

One way of working against abuse is through Raising Awareness Training. This could be held at your local community centre, work place, school or church. The more people we can reach in our communities, the greater chance we have of impacting lives for the better and preventing abuse from happening.  

Every opportunity given to us to share about the work of The Crossing Point means people are getting to know about abuse. This all helps in our fight against it. We’d welcome your support in this by asking us to come to a special event you might be putting on, women’s groups, coffee mornings etc., – together we can help stop abuse.

Have you ever thought of becoming a volunteer? If you would like to get involved with The Crossing Point then we will provide you with the necessary training.  Any time you can commit is appreciated. 

Due to COVID-19 it has not been possible to meet in person, to run group programmes, deliver training and give talks in the normal way that we would like. However, we are able to offer certain services through zoom meetings, until safety measures are lifted. Please contact us for more information.

The Crossing Point is a registered charity. All the services it offers are free.
