Women’s Aid ABCLN is inviting you to ‘Walk A Mile In Her Shoes’ this Autumn to help raise vital funds and awareness about domestic abuse.

Join us! Put your walking boots or trainers on and Walk A Mile for Women’s Aid ABCLN. Get out there and ‘Walk A Mile’ to help us raise funds as you kick up the leaves and get some exercise during these new restrictions.

Simply walk a mile or more if you would like to and ask friends and family to sponsor you using the sponsorship form attached or set up a JustGiving page using the link below.

Our ‘Walk A Mile In Her Shoes’ campaign is about empathy, being able to put yourself in the shoes of someone who has experienced domestic abuse.  A mile is a very short distance in terms of the journey that women have to endure.

One in four women will experience domestic abuse in their lifetime. It is so important that we recognise that domestic abuse can take many forms and go on for years.

With over 8,000 domestic abuse incidents reported to the PSNI during lockdown, we need your support now more than ever to help raise funds and awareness.

Share your ‘Walk A Mile’ selfies on social media using the hashtags #WalkAMile #YouAreNotAlone and help us get the message out there for ANYONE affected by domestic abuse that you are not alone. Women’s Aid ABCLN is here for you and help is available.
