By taking part in the Walk for Women you will raise much needed funds for Women’s Aid. You will help us keep our National Helpline open 24/7 so we can listen, believe and support women experiencing domestic violence. It will also help us promote our Helpline so that women know how to contact us and what we can do to help. With your support we can work with a woman from that very first call right through to one to one support, safety planning for her and her children, supporting her at court and with other legal issues. And because we want to prevent abuse, with your support, we can continue our campaign for young women which highlights dating abuse and controlling behaviour in relationships.
