Our impact

Our impact

We have been supporting victims and survivors of domestic abuse for nearly 50 years, providing life-changing support and emergency accommodation.

Last year we supported more than 10,000 victims and survivors of domestic abuse across Yorkshire and responded to 25,000 helpline calls, providing expert advice to help people stay safe. We also accommodated hundreds of families who needed to escape abuse.

“Until I met Michelle, my IDAS worker, I didn’t even know what domestic abuse was, it was just my life.”

Our impact this year

“You have done so much for me, I don’t know where to start. I want you to know that I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thanks to you, I have a lovely fresh start and for once in my life, my life feels like living”
