Date Published 06 October 2020

COVID-19 is having a serious impact on the lives of women and children suffering from domestic abuse. Shocking statistics revealed that domestic violence has surged since the start of the coronavirus lockdown, with a 700% increase in calls to helplines in a single day. Now add the pressure of Christmas can see why we want to help.

Noonan Property Services are working with Cambridge Women's Aid, who provide dedicated and specialist services to women and children affected by domestic abuse. In particular they offer specialist support to children and their mums, via a range of interventions to support their recovery from living with domestic abuse, promote positive relationships and build resilience.

This could include:

Therapeutic work to promote recovery from distress and healthy emotional processing (individual, group or parent-child work)

Family support to help mums to understand and support their children more effectively in their emotional recovery and in building more positive family dynamics

Facilitated play and group work sessions for children in the refuge and in the community which offer fun, positive, safe places to play and socialise, reducing social isolation, offering emotional support, positive experiences, and promoting protective behaviours.

Please help us to raise funds so we can buy Tesco vouchers for the families affected, in particularly, for the children of domestic abuse so they have one less worry this Christmas thanks to your generosity.
