Mandy receiving £500 from community life supported by the ASDA foundation. We were one of three chosen charities and fortunate enough to win, meaning we received the most green tokens. This is so encouraging for us as it means that awareness is being raised and people recognise the value a charity such as ours has. Thank you!
Hannah and Janis attended the Vitality stadium on Wednesday 21st August to officially receive our funding cheque from AFC Bournemouth. This valuable funding has allowed us to expand and enhance out I.T services, helping us to keep our service up and running.
Acts Fast were privileged to be able to impart some of the knowledge, expertise and experience that we have in working with trauma and its effect of the family as a whole.
Through delivering this training we sought to not only help more parents and families in the community through educating other professionals, but to also raise awareness that we are here to support parents and any family member affected by child sexual abuse.
