The first of our 3 finalists for the Cherwell Business Awards Charity and Community Award, 2020, is Clean Slate, who support survivors of physical, sexual, mental and emotional abuse in Oxfordshire. Founded in 2009 as the Eve Women’s Wellbeing Project, the charity developed into Clean Slate in 2015, offering services for both men and women in the local area.
Lockdown has resulted in a 10% increase in reports of domestic violence across Oxfordshire, with over 15,000 cases in just 15 weeks after the restrictions were imposed. Clean Slate is a vital support network for those affected by domestic abuse, with services encompassing counselling and support groups, and with every client having access to the longer-term support that is not available on the NHS.
