Compassionate Voices CIC2022-05-19T16:15:58+01:00

Compassionate Voices CIC was registered as a not for profit organisation in July 2019
( registration no 12079728)

Mission Statement:

To create a more compassionate society through encouragement of good mental health, openness, and a better understanding of each other.

The charitable organisation was created to support women, young people and children within the community, however, compassion towards animals and the welfare of the planet are also of paramount importance too.

Achieved so far…

Since July 2019, we have achieved so much. At the back end of 2019 we successfully organised and hosted two parties for vulnerable children in the Derbyshire community. A Halloween party in October and a Christmas party on Saturday 21st December. Each of the parties were attended by over 30 children with a parent or carer. The local business community were eager to help, swiftly donating Halloween outfits, spooky tableware/accessories, toys for Santa and sweets.

A huge thank you to everyone who supported the parties in 2019, in particular Tesco, Swizzels and Peak Fm Radio. Our 2020 follow up parties were booked, but sadly had to be cancelled due to the covid19 restrictions.

Foundation Derbyshire funded workshops

Foundation Derbyshire LogoWe received our first funding award in October 2019 from Foundation Derbyshire’s PCC Community Investment Fund. This money was used to run a free well-being and empowerment 6-week workshop in the early spring 2020. Initially taking place at Derby Women’s Centre, but then because of the pandemic transferred to online sessions. The programme called ‘The Power of YOU’ helped and inspired 18 women struggling with mental health issues and low self esteem.

The National Lottery Community Fund

In July 2020 Compassionate Voices CIC’s The Power of YOU Workshops received further funding from the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by the National Lottery Community Fund. And in January 2021, ACV’s Compassionate Voices Community received additional funding from the National Lottery Community Fund. This means we can continue bringing women together to support and empower each other.

Please note: Compassionate Voices is a wellbeing and empowerment community and does not deliver counselling. All our facilitators are DBS checked and Compassionate Voices CIC has safeguarding procedures in place.

Fundraising History

As the founder of Compassionate Voices CIC, I would like to share with you some of my fundraising history
In November 1999, I organised my first ever charity event, raising funds for the NSPCC. Glenn Tilbrook, lead singer from the band Squeeze agreed to do a solo acoustic gig in between the band’s tour dates supporting Blondie. Together, we raised a significant amount of money for the children’s charity.

The Kevin Bull Memorial Golf Day 2006

2006 GOLF DAYShortly after my father’s death in 2003 more fundraising events followed. The decision was two-fold. To help me overcome the pain of losing him and to follow in his footsteps by raising money for worthy causes. And so, with the help of volunteers on the 12th May 2005, we held the first of two very successful celebrity golf days raising over £8,000 for the NSPCC. The second of the two held in 2006 in memory of my dad.

After the success of the golf days, once again with the help of volunteers, I organised another three events, raising a grand total of £20,000 for disadvantaged children.

All living beings want to live and be happy! All living beings have the ability to feel love, fear and pain!
