We know that COVID-19 will have serious impacts on the lives of women and children. Women's Aid want to reassure survivors and local specialist services that they are there for you and will be doing everything they can to support you during this challenging time.

UAVA Ltd stands for United Against Violence and Abuse. They are a consortium of three local specialist providers of domestic abuse and sexual violence services; Women’s Aid Leicestershire Ltd, FreeVA and Living Without Abuse.

They aim to provide a simplified journey, which can be accessed by anyone who has been affected by domestic abuse and or sexual violence.

Silence of Suicide

SOS's core focus has remained the same – to provide free (to the public) group meetings in a safe space, where anyone affected by suicide can talk openly and honestly about their thoughts of this still taboo subject. Their aim is to reduce, and eventually eradicate, people’s feelings of shame, stigma and silence that surround not only suicide, but all mental health conditions, meaning that many people still feel unable to say how they really feel.
