Charity of the year

Each year, Scottish Women in Business adopts a charity, nominated by members and selected by our President in consultation with committee members.

The money, support and awareness provided by swib makes a big difference to help the chosen charity. At each event, a donation of £1 per attendee is added to the amount that swib pays to the charity at the end of the year, but there are many more ways to help! Here's a round-up of all the ways in which we raise the money for our Charity of the Year. If you have any ideas on how swib can raise even more, please let us know using our contact form.

Charity 2022-23

swib's charity of the year for 2022-2023 is Thriving Survivors.

Thriving Survivors is a charity that supports all survivors of trauma. Their service is built on the personal experience of Founder and Chief Executive, Ashley Scotland.

Thriving Survivors aims to create a centre of excellence for trauma affected individuals regardless of race, culture or circumstance, with all services delivered by people with lived experience.

Their post traumatic growth programme offers survivors an opportunity to feel safe and supported whilst they begin to explore their traumatic experiences in more depth and eventually move onto the process of finding meaning in the trauma.

They provide emotional or practical support through the delivery of a range of services including our peer mentoring programme, 1-2-1 counselling sessions and our unique post traumatic growth programme.

You can find out more about Thriving Survivors on their website.
