Timeline photos“I lived in a world where I felt like I was treading on eggshells every time I came home. I felt worthless and honestly trapped. I didn’t know how to get out of the situation and didn’t want to admit to my family the predicament I was in. I finally got out of the relationship. It took years of counseling to get myself to where I am now and be in the position to have a normal healthy relationship.” Claire, ScotlandVerbal abuse crushes a victim’s self esteem. Shame grows in insecurity and self-doubt, preventing victims from reaching out to friends and family for support.We must end the stigma against verbal abuse survivors and say #NOMOREVerbalAbuse NOMOREVerbalAbuse.org ...

Can you remember what you were doing this time six years ago? Many survivors were stuck with the same abuser that has them trapped right now.In our new report, we found that the average length of an abusive relationship is six years. Six years of unsettlement & fear...and a lifetime of lasting trauma.We want to make sure that women don’t experience abuse a minute longer.

Timeline photos🙌 🙌 We are so proud of our Patron Melanie Brown, who has been recognised with an MBE in the New Year Honours List for her unwavering commitment to supporting survivors and raising awareness of domestic abuse.💬 Melanie shares: “This has taken so long to sink in because it means so much to me - more than anyone will ever know. It’s such mixed emotions. To go through such dark times and then to start coming into the light and speaking out for myself and other women has been at times incredibly painful but also unbelievably empowering. I feel I’m accepting this award on behalf of all women who have gone through — or going through — abuse in all its shapes and forms. I am so grateful not just to be a survivor but to have a platform to keep speaking out as Patron of Women’s Aid.”Melanie has bravely spoken up about her own experiences of abuse, which has informed her work as our Patron. Joining us in November 2018, she has dedicated herself tirelessly to working with us and supporting survivors. ❤️ Please join us in congratulating Melanie on a truly deserved accolade — one we know will mean so much to her. ...

An important research survey for any under 25s who experiencing or have experienced domestic abuse:Domestic abuse research shows that by the age of 15, many young people have already experienced significant abusive behaviours in their relationships. SafeLives want to better understand why and how young people begin to instigate harmful behaviours. The #IsItOk? Campaign & survey asks 11–25-year-olds what they think is and isn’t ok in a relationship. This is the last chance to input into this important survey- closing Sunday. Please share the survey with the young people you live or work with, including boys and young men, and help us in working to end domestic abuse, for everyone, for good. bit.ly/3k0CFNM ...
