Whilst I regularly donate to a number of charities, such as my local food bank, World Wildlife Fund, Mind and a collection of horse rescue charities in the UK, I wanted to find a charity to support on a regular basis that meant something to me and the situation I found myself in a few years ago.
IDAS is a specialist charity based in York. They support anyone experiencing or affected by domestic abuse or sexual violence, and offer a wide range of services to help those in need.
Domestic abuse can happen to anyone at any time, mentally as well as physically. I wish with all my heart that these charities didn't have to exist, but sadly having experienced mental abuse first hand, I know what a lifeline they are and I feel honoured to be able to support them.Find Out More
