The cost of domestic abuse should not be underestimated. Not only does it destroy the fabric of a healthy community but it comes at a financial cost to the government in policing and healthcare. In London alone the cost of domestic violence to the Criminal Justice System is estimated at £142 million a year*. Since 1984, Aanchal has provided support & assistance to over 13,200 women and children.

At Aanchal we help hundreds of women every year. We help women leave abusive situations, we refer them to appropriate shelters, we access financial support on their behalf, we provide them with an advocacy service and we provide counselling, to name but a few. (If you want to know more you’ll find further details on this website.) But to do all this, we need funding.

We’re looking for investors who are as serious as we are about breaking the chain of domestic abuse. Currently about 50% of our funding comes from the statutory sector and 50% from private corporate funding. We desperately need more.

The road from victim to fully independent citizen is a long one. How do you break the cycle of domestic abuse?

We also have some future projects in the pipeline, providing we get the funding. If you’d like to find out more take a look at our future projects.

If you or your company are looking for a charitable cause to invest in, please feel free to give Su a call on 020 3384 9412 for an informal chat. Please refer to our 2008-2009 Annual Report.
