  • Closure of Saje Scotland

    Created: 26/08/2022

    Saje Scotland has announced the closure of its services from 31 August 2022. The charity shared this statement detailing the reasons for its closure:

    "Since 2014, the charity has provided vital support for women and girls subjected to domestic abuse, enabling them to fully recover and move forward positively and safely with their lives.  

    Over 15,000 women and girls have been empowered by Saje to reach their own potential and live independently without fear of abuse, harm and coercion. Throughout our time, we have also worked with schools and many local organisations to raise awareness and change societal attitudes and stigmas about domestic abuse."

    "We are incredibly grateful to all of the wonderful trusts, foundation, and donors who supported us this far. However, despite our very best efforts, we were unable to secure long-term, statutory funding; this was, ultimately, what we needed to continue."   

    "We do not underestimate the concern that the closure may cause those who use our service. We will fulfill our final term of groups – ending in November – in a voluntary capacity. Sadly, we cannot take any further referrals."  

    "We would like to thank everyone involved in the charity. We have been supported and inspired by so many fantastic volunteers, who’ve been the heartbeat of the organisation, and we simply could not have done it without them. "

    "So many have given up their time and offered their expertise to help Saje along the way. Thank you to everyone who served on our Board of Directors, the team at Ore Valley, and Fife Voluntary Action - to name just a few."  

    "Our dedicated staff have always gone over and above to make the charity a success. We’re incredibly proud of everything that we have achieved. It has been a very fulfilling journey – that we hope to be able to continue in the future."
