Funding

Thanks to Liverpool Mental Health Consortium who via Twitter have highlighted that WHISC is one of many organisations who may lose some funding this year…

Just to reassure people, WHISC IS OPEN! At the moment, WHISC is secure until December 2018 and we continue to fundraise to ensure our services continue well into the future.

If you would care to donate to WHISC please text WOMN44, followed by the amount you would like to donate, to 70070 (example: WOMN44 £5)

  • £1 pays for a cup of tea and a biscuit for our visitors
  • £5 pays one volunteer’s travel costs
  • £15 pays for an hour’s Listening Ear for women in distress
  • £20 pays for one counselling session for women with issues they want to address

Thanks to everyone for their continued support
