Our impact: Seeing the Whole Picture
This year has brought about several challenges for not only us as an organisation, but for victims and survivors of domestic abuse and for all the frontline teams supporting them. SafeLives' Impact Report for 2019 - 2020 covers our work over the last financial year, so much of which is in partnership with fantastic organisations and committed individuals.
As we go forward, in these uncertain times, we remain committed to ending domestic abuse. Our newest work looks at prevention and early intervention especially in young relationships. We also continue to focus on changing the narrative, from 'why doesn't she leave' to 'why doesn't he stop', as we expand our Drive perpetrator programme in partnership with Respect and Social Finance. We are proud to work with statutory and voluntary partners and, of course survivors, to look at the whole picture for a family, driving systems change to keep everyone safe sooner, and with our newest corporate partners, opening up the public conversation and shining a light on domestic abuse. We have also reaffirmed our commitment to inclusion, changing the dynamics of the way we listen, reflect and act on what we hear and what we learn.
We can't do any of this alone. Our impact is only made possible due to the determination and expertise of the survivors, services, funders, partners and policymakers we work alongside every day. We thank every single person and organisation who has made progress possible and who believes that one day we will be free from domestic abuse and its devastating impact.
