A few years ago, re:shape, a charity working to prevent sexual harm across Yorkshire made radical changes to the way it operates.
It was a change which saw the charity encourage the local business community to support the mission more.
re:shape’s work is vitally important, but it isn’t the obvious choice for businesses seeking out a local charity to support. As Tammy Banks, CEO at re:shape knows, private sector firms tend to support other charities or animal sanctuaries – not those that work to prevent sexual harm.
