H.O.P.E national calls are a national platform which started in April 2020- The H.O.P.E calls have enabled people to come together during C19 and have open discussions and share good practice around domestic abuse/ sexual violence within Black, Asian & minority ethnic communities. These meetings have created a safe space for front line workers, activists, survivors, academics, policymakers and students among many others. In 2020 H.O.P.E would like to thank a donor who wishes to remain anonymous for their donation. H.O.P.E would like to thank Llyods community foundation for their grant of £12500 for these calls to continue into 2021. Please read full press release here.
