Charity: Crisis Pregnancy Care
Charity number: 1163337
Description: Hi, we are a small charity in Halifax, West Yorkshire that was set up to support women in crisis, either due to pregnancy or from a pregnancy loss. We launched in May 2007 and soon after began to see clients in distress. One of the unique aspects of CPC is the way we allow people to explore their feelings in a non-directive environment. Especially when it comes to a crisis pregnancy, it seems everyone has an opinion and that leaves people afraid to talk openly about their situation for fear of being bullied or criticised. We aren't a medical centre and we're not a religious organisation so we don't have any agenda other than to be the best listeners we can be and our clients say that we have really helped them so that works for us. Over time, we have extended our services to helping families with baby things (up to one year); to supporting those who have suffered miscarriage, stillbirths and abortions; to supporting new parents with caring for their babies; supporting parents through the adoption process and those who have had difficult pregnancies or deliveries. We have even gone into local schools to talk to young people about pregnancy. All of this is fulfill what we originally set out to do, which was always to be ordinary women just helping other women through what can be a difficult and at times, lonely period in their life. We rely on volunteers and the women (and occasional man) who helped us have all been very valuable to us. Many college students wanting to be midwives come to us briefly to get experience of working with pregnant women and new mothers. Others are new mothers themselves and have a unique insight into local nhs services. Some are older, their children have grown up and their patience and wisdom has really helped when people come to us in distress. We are totally reliant on donations to continue to provide this service. Our running costs have gone up and we need to pay wages, We also need to cover expenses such as paying for petrol to collect items donated. Every penny raised will go towards keeping the service active and we are very grateful for the financial support, thank you.
