True Butterflies Foundation is a Cornwall-based charity that supports survivors of domestic abuse and their children. The organisation offers a broad range of support services, including mentoring, counselling, therapeutic-based workshops and court support helping families towards recovery.

 

The number of families requiring support increases year on year, with the charity working with each individual for as long as they need, which can be on a long-term basis. As a result, they currently have a waiting list for up to 8 months.

 

Community Levelling Up funding will support a move to larger premises in Truro and build the charity’s capacity with more staff and volunteers.

 

They are also recruiting two new roles for Support Leads, one for adults and one specialising in children, increasing their service capacity and extending the number of volunteers they take on each year. Volunteers will receive a package of training, providing them the opportunity to improve their skills and chances of securing employment.
