How a proto-col ambassdor is helping others

The Jan Foundation is a small local charity which has worked in South West Birmingham for the last 11 years.  Our aim is to support people who are living or have lived with domestic violence or domestic abuse and long to have better lives.

Our fully trained volunteer mentors give long-term one-to-one support and women supported by our mentors have reported that they would have found it much harder to make or sustain the life-changes that they have made without the support they have received.
