The Eastern Cyber Resilience Centre (ECRC) is really excited to announce that it will be working Peterborough Women’s Aid as its partner charity and the beneficiary of its Referral Scheme over the next 12 months.
Peterborough Women’s Aid
Peterborough Women’s Aid (PWA) is the only specialist domestic abuse service in Peterborough and provides safe and stable refuge accommodation for women and children fleeing high risk domestic abuse, potentially at risk of homicide. The refuge provides essential provision for up to eight families where we can offer our specialist, holistic model of support.
PWA runs a number of specialist community services. We have an advice line, webchat and group work service for survivors who are living
in the community. PWA facilitates the Own My Life Programme online and in person. We work in HMP Peterborough with female residents delivering awareness and empowering sessions. We run a weekly group session in Peterborough raising awareness about abuse, and also focussing on self-esteem, confidence and prevention.
What is the ECRC Referral Scheme?
We want to be able to help every business in the Eastern region and believe that the best recommendation will come from our members after having experienced the support that we can provide.
But we also recognise that cyber resilience is not most people's normal business conversation, so we want to give something back to you, to say thank you, when you refer a business who signs up to our community.
Refer between 1 - 9 members
We will give your company a shout out on our social media channels for every referral that you get to sign up. We will publicly recognise that your business is taking cyber resilience seriously and helping to protect the business community in the East.
Refer over 10 members
We will donate £5 to our partner charity Peterborough Women's Aid for every referral over 5 that you get to sign up.
Refer 25 members
Refer over 25 members and get a £100 voucher for you, or a charity of your choice, to pay towards a Cyber PATH Student Service.
