People can be affected at any time – it can reduce work performance and frequently lead to time off work. This has a direct impact on a business. With 1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men experiencing domestic abuse in their adult lives, you are very likely to have employees who are experiencing domestic abuse, as well as witnesses and perpetrators.

The cost of domestic abuse to businesses is estimated at £1.9 billion a year due to decreased productivity, time off work, lost wages, and sick pay.

Research shows that a high proportion of those experiencing domestic abuse are targeted at work. This may include harassing phone calls, abusive partners arriving at the office unannounced, and physical assaults.

Only 5% of businesses have a specific policy or guidelines in place.

‘Our vision is that women and children can live safe lives free from domestic abuse.’ 

By choosing to support us and nominating us as your charity of the year you can contribute to making that vision a reality.
