Fundraising

Every year in NI there are thousands of sexually violent crimes reported to PSNI, and thousands more that go unreported.  Without specialist support like ours, victims of these crimes will find it even harder to deal with the trauma they will be living with.  The impact of this trauma can be devastating and is life long.

By fundraising for Nexus, you will be making a difference to someone who is living with trauma of sexual violence.

You:

There are lots of fun and exciting ways for your and your family, friends or colleagues to fundraise for Nexus.  The possibilities are endless, from taking part in an organized event such as an abseil or run, to organizing your own fundraiser such as a pub quiz or music event.   Whatever you choose, we are so grateful for your support and we’ll be there to support your efforts every step of the way!
