Genius Technology Solutions, based in Lincolnshire has recently donated a laptop to EDAN, a charity supporting victims of domestic abuse, ensuring its workers are still able to help those in need.
The donation of the laptop is a great help to the EDAN team as they work remotely and can continue supporting vulnerable clients who come to the charity when they are in crisis and often in danger.
With a history of working in the police force and on domestic abuse cases, Tony Smith, Director at Genius had this to say when he met with Jonathan Wilkinson-White, a member of the EDAN charity team: “As a former Hostage Negotiator, it’s a privilege to still be able to help people in crisis.”
While Jonathan represented EDAN to receive the donation he has a background as an advanced practitioner working across a number of agencies such as Fortis Therapy and Training and in private practice as Garden Room Counselling, supporting those in need. Through his experiences, Jonathan has been able to provide all clients with the support that they needed to make effective progress and benefit from therapy.
Jonathan and EDAN provide essential therapy and support for survivors of domestic abuse and violence. He commented; ”Due to the current situation it has made it very difficult for me to conduct face-to-face therapy. Having this laptop allows us to ensure that therapy is provided safely without breaching any confidentiality and in a way that allows it to remain accessible to all who need it.”
“Supporting others through difficult times is very important,” continues Tony Smith, “which is why Genius is supporting local charity EDAN Lincs initiative of ‘Ending Domestic Abuse Now’.
EDAN commented on the donation: “Huge thanks go out today to Genius Technology Solutions for the super kind donation of a laptop that can be used in our refuges by families to support their journey.”
“This is truly a worthy cause that Genius is proud to support, as it helps people when they need it the most and often feel at their most alone. Helping others isn’t just a good idea – its genius!” Says Tony Smith.
