Kaleidoscopic UK

Kaleidoscopic UK is changing patterns to find our colours again from domestic abuse.

‘Survivors’ we believe to be those currently experiencing or having experienced domestic abuse in any form as you have to survive daily, in it or out of it.

Kaleidoscopic uk is about changing patterns and finding our colours again after domestic abuse. It may change us BUT it does NOT define us.

Let us help you find your colours.

You’re Among FRIENDS

We provide independent, confidential and free on-going survivor-led support groups. Available to anyone who has experienced any form of domestic abuse.

Enhancing education and awareness through the eyes of survivors.

Providing training for any service or individual supporting survivors.

Coronavirus COVID-19 Update

Our services are still available during Covid-19 via online portals

Kaleidoscopic online programmes and support groups can be made available via Zoom.

Isolation is a classic tool used by abusers.

So with the COVID-19 virus we know this will be a difficult time.

Services are all still operating online/phone if you need them though and you are NOT alone.

  • We suggest using a codeword with a safe person. If you use this word to them via any means then they know what help to send for you.
  • If you are able to have an emergency bag/essentials stored somewhere in case its needed.
  • Keep connected with others as much as possible.
  • Do things daily that make you happy such as affirmations, baking, art, singing (if you are able to).
  • Use grey rocking tools.
  • Reach out.
  • Remember you DONT deserve it and it ISNT your fault.

Press release from the Office of James Sunderland MP

“I have the pleasure of meeting Vickie earlier this year on a Zoom call. At first, I was sceptical about what the call was aiming to achieve, but as I listened to Vickie and her story, all the scepticism was replaced by an admiration for what she was trying to achieve and her enthusiasm to help others.

As the Member of Parliament for Bracknell, Crowthorne, Finchampstead, Sandhurst and Wokingham Without, I am proud to support Kaleidoscopic UK.

Domestic abuse has no place in today’s society, and we must do all we can to support those who have been victims, women, men and their families. For those who are perpetrators of domestic abuse we must break the cycle, much of their abuse has been learned from observative abuse elsewhere. However, the priority is supporting the victims and to break the cycle of learned behaviour.

The work of Vickie and her co-volunteers are an inspiration to us all. The charity has gone beyond the local area and supports victims across the UK. I will be a champion for the charity with my parliamentary colleagues.”

SURVIVOR

Kaleidoscopic UK believe and use the term SURVIVOR for ANYONE who is experiencing, or has experienced, domestic abuse in ANY form.

KALEIDOSCOPIC

dictionary definition – adjective; changing form, pattern and colour.

This is why we chose the name as we CAN change our patterns, and find our colours after abuse; “abuse may change us but it DOESN’T define us”
