The police receive, on average, over 100 calls relating to domestic violence every hour. It’s a big problem. That’s why we’re doing something about it, and have been for a long time. Since Comic Relief began, we’ve helped support over 900,000 people experiencing domestic violence.
In 2003, we helped to set up the National Domestic Violence Helpline. We continue to fund it to this day. From counselling and helplines to safe accommodation, your money helps to give those living with domestic violence a way out, a safe space and the support they need to move on with their lives.
Comic Relief is working with a number of partners to fund Tech vs Abuse, an initiative which seeks to understand how technology can be used to help those affected by domestic abuse.
