SUPPORT SERVICES FOR UNDERPRIVILAGED WOMEN & CHILDREN
PHOEBE is a registered charity organization that offers psycho-social support services to underprivileged women and children. It is our mission is to eliminate stress, anxiety, depression and low self-esteem amongst women and children. As part of our mandate and close to our hearts is putting in place support systems that provide simple and practical solutions which enhance well-being, self-confidence and child development.
Phoebe is committed to providing psycho-social support to underprivileged children and mothers to alleviate the socio-economic determinants that inhibit them from accessing basic social security services, easing vulnerability to domestic violence and child abuse. We also provide support to domestic violence survivors through our Family Support Worker who provides individual and group counselling sessions to affected women and children. Being the only specialist women’s organisation offering support to domestic survivors in Suffolk, we aim to create partnerships with relevant organisations to provide and extend our support in a holistic manner to improve their mental well-being and quality of life. Thus enabling the women and children to lead healthy, fulfilling lives that provide conducive environments for adequate child development.
With almost 15 years of experience working in the Suffolk community, our trained community champions who have extensive ties to the Ipswich community bring their own specific local and cultural knowledge which resonates with BME and migrant women providing a valuable bridge for us and our partners in implementing programs in the area. It also creates trust such that the mothers entrust their children to be beneficiaries and participate in our child-friendly projects.
