You Matter is a program run through the Surrey Hills Neighbourhood Centre. The program supports women and their children who have fled Domestic Violence by providing the furniture and household equipment to ensure that their permanent home is fully equipped, functional and comfortable, so that they are once again able to access the opportunities society has to offer. The work by You Matter helps these women and children to feel welcomed and supported by the community so the children can continue their schooling from a functional and quality home and gives women dignity in their situation.
The Surrey Hills Branch has provided funding to store furniture donations. This will allow the program to grow by being able to accept the many donations of furniture from people that need to be collected at short notice and then on call until a house is being furnished.
