One Year On


A lot can happen in a year, or so the saying goes.

When COVID-19 arrived in the UK in early 2020, domestic abuse services were well aware of the impact a government-sanctioned lockdown would have on victims. Our worst fears were quickly realised.

Now is the time to reach in

It’s been a year since the world changed in a way most of us couldn’t imagine. In that time, we’ve all been on a journey. At first there was surprise, shock, novelty, fear. Some of us may have experienced heartbreaking grief or been separated from family. Now, 12 months on, we've settled into some sort of routine - however unwelcome. Lockdowns and face masks are not always pleasant but they are no longer new.

Survivors Supporting Survivors - International Women’s Day 2021

International Women’s Day is a day to celebrate the achievements of women. This year we are celebrating the inspiring survivors of domestic abuse who use their experiences to enact change, campaign fearlessly and support other survivors.  

Everyday thousands of women use their experiences and passion to transform the response to domestic abuse. This International Women’s Day we want to recognise and celebrate the incredible work they do. When survivors support survivors we can change the world.
