Freephone 24-Hour National Domestic Violence Helpline: 0808 2000 247

Run in partnership between Women’s Aid and Refuge

Tech abuse

Domestic violence takes lives and ruins lives, affecting one woman in four at some point in her life in England and Wales alone and killing two women every week.  Modern technology gives perpetrators an ever-growing arsenal of new pernicious ways to control, isolate, humiliate and dominate women using the tools of everyday life: a phone, a laptop, even a Satnav.

Power and Control

Sandra Horley CBE, Refuge chief executive, has launched a new edition of her ground-breaking book, Power and Control: why charming men can make dangerous lovers. The book shares the myriad ways abusive men control their partners, and the stories of women who escaped.


Whether you over indulged a little at Christmas, or you’ve set New Year’s resolutions to get in shape, or have decided to raise more for charity, or you’re simply looking for a new challenge, we have so many ways for you to get involved and support Refuge this year. With your help we can keep our services running and reach more women and children into 2018. Sign up for one of our events today!

Research shows that too few women recognise the non-physical signs of domestic violence. Learn more about the more subtle controlling behaviours used by domestic violence perpetrators. #domesticviolence

#Southwark has one of the highest levels of reported domestic abuse in London. Join us for this event on 7th Feb @CamHouse1889 to explore domestic abuse and how the #community can help: @SolaceWomensAid @lb_southwark
