What is domestic abuse?
Over 1 in 4 people (source: Women’s Aid) will experience domestic abuse between the age of 16 and 59 and the vast majority are women.
Domestic abuse can be financial, psychological, physical, emotional or sexual – and there is no excuse for it.
Understanding the difference between domestic abuse and a healthy relationship could save someone’s life one day.
” Safe place to share what I have experienced and not be judged.“
“The best thing about the Safe in Sussex programme was being able to talk about what has happened and being understood and listened to.“
“I have learnt not to be harsh on myself but to talk kindly to myself as if talking to a friend or child. I have come a long way!“
It’s only 8 weeks until local charity Safe in Sussex’s 3rd Gingerbread House Fun Day. In previous years, local businesses and groups have taken part and this year it is open to everyone. The event this year will be virtual and takes place on Friday, 11th December.
The group of 6 women hope it will be 3rd time lucky for them next year.
Next year they will be challenging themselves to idrop down the British Airways i360 in Brighton to raise vital funds for Safe in Sussex. The Awesome Droppers are Deb, Ros, Sian, Helen, Rebecca and Carolyn.
Linda has been running for approximately 5 years, but only just last year completed in the Gatwick Half Marathon as a challenge to herself. Having enjoyed this, when the space came up for her to run for the charity where she works, she felt she had to give it a go!

Safe In Sussex receives 14% of its funding from the government. The rest is through grants, fundraising events, donations, legacies and corporate sponsorship.
Demand for our services grows every year and finding the money to fund our vital services gets tougher all the time.
We are fortunate to receive some grant funding from Children in Need, the National Lottery and local authority organisations, but we are constantly looking for new ways to attract funding.
