Partnerships

We know and believe ‘it takes a village’ and domestic abuse requires a community response. That’s why we work in partnership with individuals and organisations to carry out our work in the community.

We’re always keen to deliver services in the community in partnership so if you’d like to discuss an opportunity with us, then please get in touch – this may be part of your Corporate Social Responsibility (CRS) or employee wellbeing strategy. We are currently looking for the following partners:

We’re looking to work with schools in Swale to deliver:

If you work in a school and think any of the above would benefit your students or their mums, then we’d love to partner with you.

We are looking to work with all general practices across Swale to improve the identification and referrals of domestic abuse victims, through the delivery of the IRIS programme.

If you work for a general practice, in whatever capacity, please get in touch so we can discuss working together to close the vast gap of health inequality within our community.

Domestic abuse is a health issue.

 

Creativity allows us to channel and express experience, and we know it can oftentimes be a much more efficient way to relate, to empathise and to understand others. It allows us to connect.

That’s why, in our quest to connect our community to our mission, we work with artists who explore domestic abuse and gender-based violence in their art. If this is you or someone you know, then we’d love to find ways to work together and partner with you.

From educating to space-sharing, to service delivering and to fundraising, below are some of the wonderful partners we work with, to keep empowering women and children in our community to live as fully as they can beyond domestic abuse.

KAMDAC

Alongside Rising Sun, Oasis and DAVSS — all brilliant local domestic abuse services — we form part of The Kent and Medway Domestic Abuse Consortium (KAMDAC). This partnership flourished 10 years ago to continually and collaboratively improve the delivery of domestic abuse support across Kent and Medway.

Red

Red is a visual artist and survivor based in Cornwall whose art reflects her experiences of domestic abuse. Over the past 2 years she’s generously raised and donated funds for SATEDA, through her beautiful works of art, and we’re so grateful for this blossoming partnership. We partnered up in 2021, after meeting during an online workshop.

Thank you auction red

Seashells

Seashells Nursery in Sheerness have generously supported SATEDA over the years by giving us the space to deliver our group programmes to women on the Isle of Sheppey in a safe and welcoming environment.

Swale Borough Council

SATEDA have been based at the offices of Swale Borough Council since forming as an organisation in 2009. We work closely with the council’s various teams, in particular the Community Safety team overseeing the borough’s Violence Against Women and Girls forum, to ensure a community response to domestic abuse.

HMP Prisons

We have partnered with 4 UK prisons since launching Project Hope in the summer of 2020 after we heard of women – many of whom are incarcerated before their stories are completely heard – locked in their cells for 23 hours a day due to the difficulties of maintaining social distancing. Our aim is to help reduce loneliness and isolation by writing them caring and empowering letters, cards, quotes and poems.

Tania and Fiona

These two incredible women run their own respective local businesses: BASE (Tania) and Microblading & More (Fiona) and generously donate their services at our raffles, and to women we support. Tania offers them a mini pamper when they finish our programmes, and Fiona offers her specialist support, such as covering self-harm scars. Tania also runs the Swale Ladies Who Latte group, where we’ve delivered talks about domestic abuse.

Morrisons

We work with Morrisons Community Champions at Neats Court Queenborough and Sittingbourne. They are really supportive with providing donations for our raffles, quiz prizes, coffee mornings, products for period poverty and allowing us to have awareness stands at their shops. We have also supported Morrisons at a fundraiser and their Sittingbourne depot opening event in aid of Demelza.

University of Kent

We are regularly welcomed by Kent University’s Canterbury and Medway campuses, to have awareness stands at their volunteering fairs and welcome days. Many of our volunteer recruits come from UKC, giving their time in a variety of roles. We’ve also worked in partnership with the Kent Business School for their MBA consultancy week where students work with a local organisation on their strategic targets.
