We are delighted to announce that WEB was recently awarded Â£15,000 to develop and expand its fantastic work with victims of crime and continue to offer the vital support needed for survivors to recover.
Bernie, WEB’s Centre Manager said â€œWe absolutely delighted to have been successful with our bid to the Victims Services and Restorative Justice Fund.
“We are a ‘user-led’ service charity and social enterprise who has been serving vulnerable adults and children for over 23 years.
“This year we will be celebrating our 20th birthday as a registered charity and what great news to help us celebrate.”
Ms Kennedy said: “Victims are at the heart of my police and crime plan and I am delighted that through these awards I can support a whole range of initiatives that are working to protect and care for those affected by crime in our region.
“This funding has been given to grassroots Merseyside organisations which are working with some of the most vulnerable people in our communities â€“ child victims of sexual exploitation, survivors of domestic violence, sexual offences and hate crime â€“ to help them cope, recover and rebuild their lives.

More about the project:
A combination of WEBâ€™s award winning Pathways 2MPowerment personal development training, inspirational art project and challenging documentary film,Â I See YouÂ will engage women from the local community and support them to see themselves and their potential through the eyes of others, challenge negative/limiting beliefs about themselves and those around them and build skills, confidence, self-esteem and aspirations for the future. We will run a series of programmes exploring beliefs/their impact on self-esteem & confidence and facilitate open and safe discussion within the groups. In addition to these personal development sessions, women will take part in painting workshops where we will produce self-portraits with a difference â€“ as they will represent the supportive and positive feedback we have received from others during the earlier group sessions. The project will culminate in a celebration and exhibition of our portraits.
