Domestic Abuse Volunteer Support Services - talk to us

Day 16 of 16 Days of Action Against Domestic Violence

Domestic Abuse – Highlighting the hidden costs

Each day for the last 16 we have highlighted one aspect of domestic abuse; how it remains a taboo and an under-reported crime, the cost to health and mental well-being, that men as well as women are victims, how some are subconsciously coerced and controlled by partners, we heard about Susan & Larry and how they confronted their partners, we signposted what healthy relationships look like and looked at the impact of stalking and cyber-stalking. We know how grateful our clients are for the support they receive from their DAVSS volunteer who is with them all the way. We highlighted the FREEDOM programme which assists victims to regain their life and self confidence, the DAY programme for young people and our Support to Court project.

As the 16 days draws to a close we will not lose sight of the continued pain caused by domestic abuse and the ongoing need for charities like DAVSS to support victims. But the last word is for our wonderful volunteers who give us hours of their time to support members of our community to cope with the effects. Thank you.

If you would like to learn more about DAVSS and are considering volunteering your time, give us a call on 01892 502074.
