Today Advance, the leading London-based women’s charity, has launched a new public awareness-raising campaign highlighting that domestic abuse can happen to anyone and takes many forms; we can all help change a life today.
The film I Am With Her and the campaign under the hashtag #IAmWithHer, tells the real stories of five women and children, sharing their journey until they were able to get help. Each woman and girl’s individual story can also be found on the Advance website.
It encourages all of us to show solidarity and support for those who may be suffering and to reinforce that domestic abuse is unacceptable, by saying #IAmWithHer on social media and by raising vital donations for Advance’s free helpline and services.
With domestic abuse calls up by 25% nationally, following the enforced lockdown by government in light of COVID-19, Advance has seen a big increase in approaches from women affected. As incidents soar, the charity urgently needs help to raise funds to support those affected and to advise
women how to find help. To donate please visit: https://advancecharity.org.uk/get-involved/urgent-appeal/
