#DomesticViolenceAwareness

If you are not already aware, October is the month of Domestic violence awareness.

It can be difficult to gather key information about services and help online in regards to domestic violence in a short space of time because they tend to be on different web pages when you look them up. I have gathered information about some Charities in LONDON that are working towards providing support to victims of domestic abuse. You may know someone personally affected by it or be a survivor yourself who may want to find out about your options or simply want to find out more about DV, the charities I list below will give you an insight about things you can learn and support that is available.
