In recent months, we have all witnessed the spread and impact of Coronovirus and the threat that it poses to women and children experiencing domestic abuse. Many women will now be isolated at home with an abuser, with little safety and no way to access face-to-face support.
In the first two weeks of lockdown, there was a 41% increase in users visiting the Women’s Aid Online Live Chat Service. As long as social restrictions are extended by government, we expect to see a continued rise in need. Your fundraising will make a huge difference in helping us keep these vital services running, so we can support every woman reaching out. By supporting Women’s Aid you are joining movement ensuring domestic abuse in no longer tolerated in society. Thank you for helping us achieve this.
