Abberton Rural Training works with domestic abuse charity Next Chapter to support those living in the Women’s Refuge in Colchester or women in north and mid Essex recovering from domestic abuse.
The mission is to aid recovery by giving women access to rustic recovery activities, enabling them to be more active outdoors, to learn new skills, to learn about healthy eating, and to improve their physical and mental health.
The Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Essex contributed £21,463.60 to Abberton Rural Training in the form of a crime and disorder reduction grant from the 2020-2021 Community Safety Development Fund to roll out the Rustic Recovery Programme. The work helps the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, Roger Hirst, deliver against their priority of supporting the victims of domestic abuse and reducing vulnerability.
