On Wednesday 11th November, at The Grand Hotel in York, IDAS launched a new campaign to raise awareness of domestic abuse and encourage early self-referrals to the helpline, website and live chat facility, which will be live from 16th November. The campaign seeks to reach out to anyone who is experiencing domestic abuse to come forward and get support as early as possible whether they want to report to the police or not. We are delighted that the campaign is supported by the Police and Crime Commissioner and by the police.
IDAS are also encouraging people to get involved in spreading the campaign message by tweeting messages of support to the hashtag #WeAllDeserve. If you would like to find out more about how you can get involved in reaching out to victims and survivors of domestic abuse, please do get in touch with Carmel Offord on email@example.com
