This Christmas, Staying Put is asking the generous people of Bradford to donate £2 to their ‘Small Change, Big Difference’ appeal.

Launching their appeal to coincide with 16 Days of Activism, the domestic abuse and sexual violence charity is hoping to raise £100,000 which will help them to continue their vital life changing and life-saving work.

In Bradford, there are 43 incidents of domestic abuse every day, whilst 1 in 4 women and 1 in 8 men have been raped or sexually assaulted as an adult.

Your donation of £2 will be used to support people experiencing domestic abuse- whether that’s through support from their phone line, support from their dedicated IDVAs and or providing support through their refuges, relocation to a new home, help with work and training and much more.

“The aim is that if everyone gives just £2, we’ll be able to raise £100,000,” said Andy Ellis, Business Development Manager, Staying Put. “We can use the money to improve the living conditions at the existing refuges and our other safe houses, and we’ll be able to employ additional experienced staff to help support more people in Bradford.”

The appeal video was co-produced using real stories from survivors of domestic abuse and sexual violence.

Yasmin Khan, CEO, Staying Put said: “16 Days of Activism launches on the 25th November and is an international campaign to end violence against women. What better time to launch our Christmas appeal?

We are excited about this campaign and the money raised will go straight back to the people and diverse communities we have the honour of supporting to heal from the trauma of violence and abuse.”
