Vote for Pathway Project to win a donation in the My Favourite Voucher Codes Poll

This month Pathway Project is participating in a charity poll where we stand the chance of winning a donation!

All we need is for as many people as possible to cast their free vote for Pathway Project this February.

What Is the My Favourite Voucher Codes Poll?

Every month, money money-saving website My Favourite Voucher Codes hosts a charity poll where 4 charities are nominated for the chance to win a donation. Throughout the month the public can vote for the charity that they want to win the donation. This donation is 20% of My Favourite Voucher Codes’ profits for the month and goes to the charity that gets the most votes at the end of the month.

It really is that simple – 4 charities could win the donation and the one with the most votes at the end of the month wins!

This is why we need your help to win the poll. If we win this donation, it can help us support more people who are or have been affected by domestic and sexual abuse in Staffordshire and make a real difference to the lives of those affected by abuse.

How Can I Vote for Pathway Project?

Voting is 100% free, there is no need to enter any details and it takes 2 clicks:

1. Visit the My Favourite Voucher Codes website
2. Scroll until you find the poll (right-hand side of the page on desktop, near the bottom of the page on mobile)
3. Vote for Pathway Project!

Voting will be open from 1st February 2024 to 29th February 2024.

What Is My Favourite Voucher Codes?

My Favourite Voucher Codes is a website which provides free online voucher codes and discounts for online shoppers. They house offers for a range of retailers to help people save money on everything from cat food to world cruises, and everything in between.

Every voucher used at My Favourite Voucher Codes helps raise money for charity too. As their donations are a percentage of profits, the more vouchers you use to get great discounts, the more you raise for a good cause!

It truly is a win-win. But if you don’t want to shop at the moment, that’s fine too, you can still vote in the poll without using any vouchers.

So if you have a few minutes to spare and want to help Pathway Project win a donation, please vote for us this February.

The big move

After many many years at our Upper St Johns Street location, we’ve made the bold step to move our premises into Lichfield City Centre.

As many of you were aware we had a large building with a lot of rooms we didn’t need, so it made sense to downsize into a building that matched our needs. We’ve moved into an old Yoga studio, and we can only hope the calm mood stays with us in the building!

You can now find us at Hope Centre 3 Quonians Lane (off Dam Street) Lichfield WS13 7LB

Please note we no longer reside at 73 Upper St. Johns Street.


Our new neighbours.


We’re the end white building, after the antiques shop.

Kathy goes PINK for Pathway!

Our fabulous founder Kathy Coe MBE surprised us all this August by deciding to dye her hair pink for Pathway in a bid to raise much needed funding to support our services.

For those that aren’t familiar with Kathy’s story, who better to hear a snippet of it from than the woman herself:

‘I escaped a violent and abusive husband to find that there was little understanding of what I was going through. For over 7 years I campaigned for domestic abuse services, and then helped set up services…this is how Pathway is the Pathway we all know today. We are always needing more money to be able to help more people, and I have wanted to colour my hair pink for a long time but haven’t had the courage to do so. With a lot of support, advice on the colour and the motivation of raising money I am finally going to do it. You will be helping me achieve my personal goal, but more importantly you could be saving someone’s life.’

And she did it! and so far has raised £1,010 – wow! If you’d like to contribute to Kathy’s fundraiser you can do so by clicking here

Trustee Vacancies

Pathway Project is a specialised domestic abuse charity that offers a range of services in Staffordshire (with a particular focus on the areas of Lichfield and Tamworth). We offer high-quality, personalised domestic and sexual abuse support to adults and children affected by domestic and sexual abuse. Our aim is to help build a future where adults and children affected by domestic and sexual abuse live in safety and free from fear.

We have been supporting survivors of abuse for over 30 years, and we’ve helped approximately 40,000 people during our time as a charity. In the past year, we’ve provided over 6000 hours of direct support and housed hundreds of women and children in our women’s refuges.

As we celebrate 30 years of providing great services an exciting opportunity has arisen to recruit new trustees to the Board. We are seeking well-motivated people who have an enthusiasm for our work and can demonstrate commitment to our charitable purpose and values. We require trustees who can demonstrate vision, knowledge, skills and relevant experience, so this year we are particularly looking for people with skills in the areas of law, finance and marketing. Prior experience in a trustee or governance role is not essential as we will provide training as required.

The Charities Act 2011 defines charity trustees as the people responsible under the charity’s governing document for controlling the administration and management of the charity.

Under charity law, the Board of Trustees holds the ultimate responsibility for directing the affairs of Pathway Project and ensuring that it is solvent, well run and delivering the charitable outcomes for which it has been set up.

The full job description and person specification, alongside any related documents and policies, are available in hard copy format, or by email from our Volunteer and Training Manager, Lynn Laughton who can be contacted on lynnl@pathway-project.co.uk

A Special Award

Pathway Project is proud to announce that Kathy Coe, Chief Executive Officer, has been awarded the Member of the British Empire (MBE) for outstanding service in the community.  This is a, well-deserved, honour that has been granted to Kathy who has spent 30 years providing a much-needed service to victims of domestic abuse.

Kathy, who is also a survivor of domestic abuse, founded Pathway Project when she realised that the type of support she required to rebuild her and her children’s lives was not available.  From a small start of a telephone helpline in her bedroom, the service, which is a registered charity, has grown to a dedicated team providing support, emergency refuge accommodation, counselling and drop-in service amongst other valuable assistance.

This MBE award is a recognition of Kathy’s selfless sacrifice and the high commitment of her team in turning around the lives of victims who become survivors, many of whom go on to be achievers in their future life. On behalf of the staff, trustees, partners and service users I wish to congratulate Kathy on this wonderful award.
