Domestic abuse is everyone's responsibility and local organisations, businesses and communities are getting involved in raising awareness of domestic abuse and creating a culture where we do not accept domestic abuse in Doncaster.

These pages celebrate some of the work of local residents, businesses, community and voluntary groups and statutory agencies in our shared vision to create a borough where domestic abuse is not tolerated and people are supported to get the help they need.

Big thanks to Lian Davy at Lash and Beauty Studio for these wonderful purple nails! 

Lian said:

'Before Covid19 I had not really thought about it or come across it.  However, during lockdown cases of domestic abuse were everywhere on the news and people are talking about it more.  I feel if more people get on board and talk about this matter the more we can carry on raising awareness of domestic abuse and maybe save a life and help someone.'

A big shout out to Delano Johnson, Covid Community Link Worker who is busy delivering domestic abuse leaflets to local communities.
