What’s New with Anew?

Annual Activities Report 2020

2020 has been a challenging year for us all, with the continuation of Covid-19 and the various restrictions and lockdowns coming and going.  We found, that throughout the pandemic, the women we work with and their babies needed our help more than ever.

As restrictions increased so too did the incidence of domestic violence, isolation and family breakdown. However, our team here at Anew continued to work to provide accommodation, support, counselling, advice and housing services no matter what.

We were honoured to have the fantastic actress and writer Clare Dunne join us to officially launch our annual activities report. Clare has been a long standing supporter of Anew and the women we work with.

Our Annual Report details all of the work we carried out in 2020 illustrating how our service was as busy as ever, with excellent outcomes for the families that come through our service.

“When I met these women I realised why I had to go to Anew, I was writing a version of them in my film ‘Herself’. I was trying to depict something in this story that I wrote about going from complete scarcity and dependence to absolutely thriving independence and freedom to live and not just having to try and survive. I was writing this story, but Anew and these women in the cottage were living it.” – Clare Dunne
