Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
It is reported that one in four are affected by domestic abuse and two women are killed each week in the UK by a current or former partner. Domestic abuse has devastating consequences for victims and their children. It can lead to substance misuse, mental health problems, unemployment, and homelessness. It is vastly under reported and it is estimated that a victim is assaulted around 35 times before they report to external agencies. Last year over 1.1 million women and 720,000 men were victims of domestic abuse and currently in the UK the Police receive a call for assistance for domestic abuse every 30 seconds.
The Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance’s (DAHA) mission is to improve the housing sector’s response to domestic abuse through the introduction and adoption of an established set of standards and an accreditation process. DAHA is a partnership between three agencies who are leaders in innovation to address domestic abuse within housing.
That's why I'm participating in the London Tough Mudder 5k on 13th October 2018
