In a heartening triumph for Cornwall's fight against domestic abuse, The WAVES Counselling Project has secured the coveted title of 'Domestic Abuse NPO of the Year' at the prestigious South West England Prestige Awards for the third consecutive time. This remarkable achievement not only underscores the unwavering dedication of WAVES but also highlights the pressing need for continued support and recognition of organisations combatting domestic violence.

The confirmation of WAVES' win came as a resounding validation of their tireless efforts in providing crucial support to individuals affected by domestic violence and abuse. Selected from a pool of nominees, WAVES stood out for its exceptional commitment to offering confidential counselling and outreach services to those in need.

The Prestige Awards, hosted under the esteemed Corporate Live Wire and LTG business platforms, serve as a beacon of recognition for smaller, independent businesses making significant strides at a local level. With a rigorous selection process involving industry expert judges and meticulous evaluation of supporting information, including testimonials and social media presence, the awards celebrate excellence and perseverance in various categories.

At its core, the WAVES Counselling Project is a lifeline for individuals grappling with the traumatic aftermath of domestic abuse. Staffed by specialist trained counsellors, WAVES extends a compassionate hand to survivors, empowering them to navigate the path towards healing and positive transformation. Importantly, WAVES ensures accessibility to its services for marginalized groups, including those on low incomes, young people, and members of the LGBT+ community, reaffirming its commitment to inclusivity and support for all.

Expressing elation at the prestigious accolade, Jo Stone, WAVES manager, remarked, "It is incredible to win this award for a third time, each win has been an amazing achievement, giving WAVES and the work the charity does alongside Cornwall Refuge Trust the recognition it truly deserves." The recognition not only honours WAVES' dedicated team of counsellors and volunteers but also signifies the trust and courage exhibited by survivors who bravely step forward to seek support.

This triumphant moment serves as a catalyst for WAVES to redouble its efforts in

providing vital services across Cornwall. With the spotlight shining brightly on their impactful work, WAVES aims to leverage this recognition to secure additional funding and resources, ensuring sustained assistance for those navigating the harrowing journey of overcoming domestic abuse.

As WAVES basks in the glow of this victory, it extends heartfelt gratitude to all supporters, funders, clients, and team members who have contributed to this remarkable achievement. Together, they stand as a beacon of hope, fostering a community where every individual has the opportunity to thrive in safety and dignity.
