Here is the serious bit...

Lockdown has been hard on everyone but imagine being told to stay at home when home is not a safe place for you or your children.

"The number of offences flagged as domestic abuse-related increased each month from April to June 2020, with the largest month-on-month increase (9%) between April and May 2020. This increase coincides with the easing of lockdown measures from 13 May 2020, when it may have been safer for victims to contact the police."  ONS Domestic abuse during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, England and Wales: November 2020

Sefton Women's and Children's Aid (SWACA) provide support to those who have reached out as well as help and information for those who are still living with domestic abuse. SWACA offers refuge, legal and financial advice, advocacy services, therapeutic services, 1:1 and group support for both women and children/young people. The need for their services is sadly increasing.

Help SWACA continue their free services to anyone who needs to access them.
