Give the gift of safety this Christmas

 

Incidences of violence and abuse have escalated during the pandemic.

The initial lockdown in Wales led to a 49% increase in contacts to the Welsh Women’s Aid-run Live Fear Free Helpline.

Thousands of survivors are reaching out for support and the stresses of Christmas could place them at even higher risk.

Your support is needed to help us reach those in violent situations and provide the help they desperately need. Now.

Donate your Christmas gift of safety here

“Violence against women is a shadow pandemic. Coronavirus has shown that survivors are isolated from their normal support systems and without access to support, lives are at risk.”

Sara Kirkpatrick, Welsh Women’s Aid CEO

  • Ensure our experienced helpline workers are available to listen, provide help, and give information on options and services in local areas.
  • Help survivors in Wales know that they are not alone. Everyone has the right to be safe and to live free from fear.
  • Support specialist services working with survivors in local communities.
  • Make sure addressing violence against women during the Coronavirus pandemic is a continuing priority.
