Purple is the internationally recognised colour used when raising awareness of Domestic Abuse. Add a purple theme to your fundraising by organising a dress-down day at work/school/college with everyone donating £1-2 to wear purple!

Take part in a sponsored event

If you fund your own place in an event, you will be saving Your Sanctuary the 'up-front' cost so that all of the money you raise through sponsorship goes towards our essential work. We won't set you a target and will support you to raise as much as you can!

The Cost of Domestic Abuse

Credit Assessment

Domestic Abuse costs UK businesses over £2.7 billion per year through decreased productivity, unplanned leave, lost wages and sick pay. 1 in 4 women and up to 1 in 6 men will experience Domestic Abuse in their lifetime. Perpetrators will often target their partners or ex-partners at their workplace.

 

As a responsible employer you should include Domestic Abuse as part of your health and wellbeing programmes, safeguarding and line management programmes. This can be as simple as having information leaflets and stickers prominently displayed in public spaces, ensuring that HR and line managers are trained to understand the signs of Domestic Abuse and how to respond, and to have a Domestic Abuse policy in place. We can provide you with advice and information with any or all of the above.
