Women’s Aid ABCL & N Safe Haven Project has been selected as one of the finalists for the People’s Millions Competition. To help Safe Haven win the funding, voters must phone between 9am and midnight on 25th November 2010. The voting phone number will be advertised on www.womens-aid.org.uk , www.peoplesmillions.org.uk and in the Daily Mirror . A short video about this project will also be shown on the ITV regional news between 6pm and 6.30pm.

 
If successful the project will transform land at the Antrim centre into a garden area for children who are victims of domestic violence. Plans for the garden, which can be enjoyed by children and young people who use the organisations’s refuge and other 4 centres, include a sensory garden with flowers, a mini beast garden and play, dance, music and sand areas. 
 
The area will enable children and young people to interact with others, build confidence and develop self-esteem whilst being supported to explore and express their feelings about the experiences they have been through.
