Education for Victims of Domestic Violence

Education for Victims of Domestic Violence

I am hoping to raise money to help facilitate education for those who have been affected by domestic violence.

Unfortunately this project was not successful


Key statistics about domestic abuse in England and Wales  

  • Each year around 2.1m people suffer some form of domestic abuse -  1.4 million women (8.5% of the population) and 700,000 men (4.5% of the population)  2 
  • Each year more than 100,000 people in the UK are at high and imminent risk of being murdered or seriously injured as a result of domestic abuse 3
  • Seven women a month are killed by a current or former partner in England and Wales 2
  • 130,000 children live in homes where there is high-risk domestic abuse 3

The endurance of this behavior is not down to choice, as it often hard for people to escape the situation for a financial need to stay.

It can cost thousand of pounds to relocate, remove ones self from the situation and often there is skills gap when needing to find work in a new area. These barriers prevent people from escaping abuse. 

I am hoping to raise money to help facilitate education for those who have been affected by domestic violence.
