Karinya Young Women's Service provide young at-risk women with crisis accommodation and other vital support services, such as; securing long term housing, mental health counselling, drug and alcohol counselling and pregnancy and sexual assault support.
Karinya Young Women's Service is committed to: The equal status of women in society. Positively changing society's attitude towards young women - socially, politically and economically. Working with young women towards self-determination and personal empowerment. Working with young women regardless of race, culture, socio-economic background or sexuality and providing a safe place for young women seeking refuge.
In support of Karinya and their services, the TUU are running a donations drive to collect everyday items for the young women staying in Karinya's refuge. The donations drive will kick off on Thursday the 22nd of March, outside the Student Lounge. But don't worry if you can't make it on the day, donations boxes will be situated at the Newnham campus in the student lounge and at the Inveresk campus for the next few weeks.
