Working together we can support more survivors, raise more awareness and ensure more lives are lived free from abuse.
Why choose The Wish Centre?
Domestic abuse impacts an estimated 2 million adults in the UK each year and there are on average 130,000 children living in households where there is a high risk of serious injury or death. Given these statistics, we believe that domestic abuse and honour based violence is everyone's business, and that together, communities can make a difference.
We aim to develop corporate partnerships that are mutually beneficial; working to meet the business needs and long- term goals of both parties. We are interested in enquiries from any business or organisation - large or small, whether or not you have worked in a partnership before.
