Splitz provides support services in Wiltshire, Bristol and Gloucestershire. See our services page for more details.
Splitz is a charity providing support to families, individuals, and children/young people who have experienced difficulty, where that difficulty is related to separation, divorce or domestic abuse and their assoicated issues.
We promote fairness and welcome referrals from all. Our services aim to reduce suffering and promote and preserve health and wellbeing. By helping individuals achieve and sustain independence we aim to promote social inclusion through community initiatives, employment, education and training.
We're thrilled and delighted to have received £6,000 from the Summerfield Charitable Trust toward our Gloucestershire Turnaround Programme (GTP).
GTP is a new initiative for Splitz and Summerfield's grant means that men who wish to change their abusive behaviour now have greater opportunity of doing so.
Sainsbury’s store at Bradford on Avon, nominated Splitz Support Service’s Young People’s Service as their charity of the year for 2012 -2013. A morning of flower wrapping and Valentine cake sales by Sainsbury’s staff has taken the total raised by staff and customers at Sainsbury’s in Bradford on Avon to over £2,000, which will go towards trips and special treats for the young people.
In February this year Splitz was awarded the PQASSO level 2 quality mark and the Charity Commission Quality Charity Standard. PQASSO is a nationally recognised award endorsed by the Charity Commission that offers users as well as commissioners and funders external verification of the quality and credibility of an organisation.
Splitz Support Service was re-accredited with the Investing in Volunteers standard in January 2103. Although the assessment took place in October 2012 we had to wait for the bi-annual review board meeting for the award to be ratified. This award is recognition of the positive way we include our volunteers in our charity and of the benefit they bring because of this.
The newly elected Police and Crime Commissioner, Angus MacPherson, visited Splitz on 18 December 2012. Angus met members of the management team to find out more about the services offered by Splitz. He took the opportunity to share some thoughts on how he hoped to shape services across the County.
