Each year around 1.4 million women experience some form of domestic abuse
(8.5% of the population).
7 women a month are killed by a current or former partner in England and Wales.
130,000 children within the UK are currently living with Domestic Abuse
“From the first time I called Leeds Women’s Aid I felt supported and ‘normal’. The voice at the end of the phone, understood, and helped me realise that this was not my fault, that what I had experienced for the three years previous, was in fact domestic violence”.
