Once done donate £5 or more via here and know that those few minutes out of your day are helping women, men and children escape from abuse all around the country.[/p][p]Even in ‘normal’ times, domestic abuse survivors face a herculean task to escape their abusers, but the lockdown has made the challenge almost impossible.They may not be able to call support lines while their partner is in the room. They may be forced to bear the brunt of a perpetrator’s rage and frustration. They may find it impossible to escape.[/p][p]Traffic to the website for the domestic abuse helpline has risen 156% from February to March. With an increase of 64% in Google searches for domestic abuse shelters and police in London alone in the 6 weeks of lockown have made over 4000 arrests for domestic abuse[/p][p]Counting Dead Women has identified at least 16 killings between 23rd March and 12th April – including those of children (three times the ‘normal’ number of murders). In the year ending March 2019, an estimated 2.4 million adults experienced domestic abuse (1.6 million women and 786,000 men) - it is likely this will be higher with quarantine.[/p][p]The Government has introduced a #YouAreNotAlone campaign to raise awareness of the help available to domestic abuse survivors, and announced £750million of funding for the charity sector, £2 million of which has been set aside to bolster helplines and online support for Domestic Abuse charities.[/p][p]Women’s Aid (the federation of almost 180 domestic abuse charities) believe the sector needs a cash injection of £48.2million to enable them to provide helplines, online chats and refuges – as well as to cope with increased demand. It is not acceptable that domestic abuse victems are just the collateral damage of this war[/p][p]That’s where you come in![/p][p]We set up HIIT AGAINST HIT to raise vital funds to support the domestic violence charities Women's Aid and Refuge that are working night and day to support survivors of abuse through online chats, phone services and by offering refuges and free travel to help them escape the perpetrators of abuse[/p][p]If you aren’t able to complete a workout, you can still support the cause by donating and sharing the challenge to your friends and colleagues [/p][p]Thankyou so much for your support![/p][p]Emma Sayle, Resham Kotecha and Emma Kenny[/p][p][br][/p][p]We are delighted that the HIIT AGAINST HIT campaign has partnered with Roar, Sarah Lindsay, Appy, The Fore, Chemmy Alcott, Sistr, Mindflex, Dr Vanessa Moulton, The Therapy lounge, Ames, Katie Millet, Ames Jones, Stuart Meaker, Harriet Minter, Niix, Deeson & Deeson, Sarah Mariko, Brand explosion, Fit4Sports, Nineteen Creative and The Sisterhood [/p][p][br][/p]
