Charities and causes we support

York Mind

York Mind is an incredible local provider of services supporting people recovering from mental ill-health to achieve outcomes that will progress them towards recovery, social inclusion and integration in mainstream activity such as learning, volunteering or employment.

Just like us, York Mind believe that mental ill-health does not define us. We will campaign with York Mind to raise awareness of mental ill health and help end the stigma surrounding mental health conditions. York Mind aims to be an inclusive and accessible organisation, emphasising the importance of acceptance and tolerance of the beliefs, opinions and wishes of their clients.

We all have our own journeys with mental health and wanted to support a charity that is close to many of us at Soapy. We will be fundraising and raising awareness of York Mind and the importance of better support of mental health.

IDAS – Independent Domestic Abuse Services

IDAS is the largest specialist charity in Yorkshire supporting anyone experiencing or affected by domestic abuse or sexual violence.

Their services include refuge accommodation, community based support, peer mentoring, group work and access to a free, confidential out of hours’ helpline.

IDAS’ teams of accredited specialist workers support people through the criminal justice system in addition to providing emotional support and safety planning advice.

They recognise that most victims of domestic abuse and sexual violence are women and provide a number of single sex services such as refuges for women and their children.  However, the majority of their services are accessible to anyone who is affected by abuse and they encourage male and LGBT+ victims and survivors to access their support.

For children and young people, they have developed one to one and group support. IDAS’ young persons’ RYPP (Respect Young Person’s Programme) also works with families where the young person is abusive.
