I became Chair of Eaves in May 2015. I was faced with a substantial funding deficit of more than £700K, coupled with a depleting reserves position and weak fundraising pipeline. Together with the Board of Trustees, I therefore took the very difficult decision on the 30th September 2015 to close down Eaves. This decision allowed me to oversee and conduct a structured closure, giving priority to informing donors and safeguarding services for our beneficiaries – transferring services to other organisations where possible. Specifically,
- Lea, our exiting prostitution service now resides with Nia.
- Lilith, our advocacy, campaign and research programme and no recourse expertise also resides with Nia and has received additional funding from the Lankelly Chase Foundation.
- The Beth Centre will continue
- Unfortunately it has not been possible to safeguard the Trio/Lifeskillsproject
- Unfortunately, it has not been possible to safeguard Poppy. All service users have been signposted to other service providers so that their support needs can continue to be met. We are still looking at options to establish Poppy as its own legal entity.
