The National Freephone Helpline responded to 9,308 calls in 2015. The one to one support services provided 870 one to one support sessions, carried out 239 court accompaniments, and the drop in service in Dolphin House met with 289 women during 308 visits. In the course of all these contacts made with Women’s Aid there were over 16,375 disclosures of emotional, physical, sexual and financial abuse and 5,966 disclosures of child abuse. These figures alone indicate the absolute necessity of the work that Women’s Aid does and demonstrates the extent and nature of the abuses being suffered by women and children. These statistics are compiled from women who make contact with Women’s Aid but we all know, from our different areas of practice that the number of women and children suffering with domestic violence is way in excess of these gathered statistics. It is also with great pride that I welcome the extension of the helpline now to 24 hours per day, 7 days a week.
