DASH stands for Domestic Abuse Stops Here.
We support women, children and men suffering from any kind of abuse from partners, ex partners or family members.
Did you know that:
- 2 women every week die in the UK at the hands of a partner or ex
- 1 in 4 women experience domestic abuse at some point in their life
- 1 in 6 men experience domestic abuse at some point in their life
- 750,000 children experience domestic abuse each year
Dash offers practical and professional advice at any stage of abuse – whether you are at the point of crisis, experiencing ongoing abuse or needing help to rebuild your life afterwards.
Our dedicated caring team specialise in supporting victims on their journey, and enable them to become survivors. The team help individuals protect their rights, improve their safety, and gain a feeling of empowerment. All these elements help our clients build on the powers of resilience and work towards achieving an independent and safe future.
We provide sanctuary for women and children who need a safe house as a means of escape.
DASH is working closely with schools to break the cycle of abuse, by challenging myths and stereotypes and promoting healthy beliefs and attitudes amongst children.
We have developed strong partnerships in the community with emergency services, crisis teams, legal teams and local partner agencies over the last 42 years. We are committed to increasing awareness and promoting zero tolerance of domestic abuse.
We are a small charity passionate about making a difference to those who desperately need our help.
Giveacar and its donors are proud supporters of The Dash Charity, as they work hard at supporting victims of domestic abuse. They provide practical and professional advise at any stage of abuse. If you’re planning to scrap or sell your car, give a car instead to help support women and children on their journey. Do a good deed and help them continue the service they provide to those in need by making DASH the charity you support when you donate your car to charity.
