Solace Women's Aid - Pandemic Recovery

Over the last year demand for Solace's projects has increased due to the need that has increased after the easing of lockdowns. Your support has transformed lives over the last 12 months, making sure that no woman or child who had experienced domestic abuse were left behind, stuck in abusive home with the threat of coronavirus. 

With your support over the last year, we: 

  • Housed 1087 women in our safe accommodation sites making sure they had somewhere safe to go to recover from domestic abuse
  • Provided life saving and life changing advice to over 12,300 women who needed someone to turn to when finding solace and safety after abuse
  • Provided therapeutic services to over 1900 women who needed support recovering from the trauma that is a result of domestic abuse and sexual violence
  • We worked with over 7000 people in our education services to create a future free from abuse and violence for everyone in London
  • We launched our first ever national project, the Labyrinth Project, which brings together local women's organisations to share knowledge and fund small organisations that are focused on supporting their local communities
  • We opened the first ever Emergency Temporary Accommodation site which at the height of the pandemic housed over 80 women at anyone time who had nowhere else to turn 
  • Our Emergency Fund helped us respond to the needs of women at a moments notice, from paying to a hotel where there was nowhere safe to sleep to medication when there was no money to pay.

Our advice line has seen a 26% rise in calls and the issues we are seeing on the frontline being worse than ever. The universal credit cut combined with the rising gas prices, as well as winter and increased mental health issues as a result of the pandemic means that we are facing a perfect storm for survivors of domestic abuse. Your continued support will make life-changing impact.
