Covid-19 & the impact on abusive relationships

Covid-19 is having a huge impact on the world in terms of health but what is the impact for those who are now forced to be isolated with those they try so hard to distance themselves from on a daily basis? Stylist magazine has put together this article based on information from domestic abuse charities.

Support Request

While the Police and health services will have to prioritise their role in helping to contain the virus, we want to see a clear commitment to supporting victims of domestic abuse, ensuring that the pandemic is not used as a reason to ignore the seriousness of abuse which kills two women a week.

Thank you!

Thank you very much, to Awakened Bellydance Northumberland, who fundraised on International Womens day and chose NDAS to be the recipient! "Thankyou to the 6 wonderful women who joined me at my Charity event for International Women's Day on the 8th of march 2020. It was wonderful to see them push their boundaries and try something new. Christie Harley of the Yoga Den donated the space for our event and we raised £85 pounds which the group wanted to go to a local group supporting victims of domestic abuse. We will be donating to Northumberland Domestic Abuse Services," Awakened Bellydance Northumberland
