Christmas is meant to be the most wonderful time of the year, but for the 3,500 women, men and children we support every December, it can be a frightening and isolating time. With your support, we can reach all the victims and survivors of domestic abuse in Yorkshire that urgently need our help.
Each December, we see a surge in calls to our helpline and an increased demand for our services. Victims may be trapped at home, more isolated and with less opportunities to report abuse and fewer routes to safety, and school holidays can mean that children are less likely to get the help they need.
We need your help to raise £20,000 in seven days so that we can respond to this urgent situation. We need to ensure support is available so that victims and survivors in Yorkshire can escape to safety with their children this Christmas.
Every donation, no matter how small, will make a difference.
IDAS is the largest specialist charity in Yorkshire supporting people affected by domestic abuse and sexual violence.
