Each year nearly 2 million people in the UK suffer some form of domestic abuse and we are here to tell you that #YouAreNotAlone. This campaign has been introduced to De Montfort Students' Union (DSU) to raise awareness of these issues and normalise talking about them.
This is government campaign, under the hashtag #YouAreNotAlone, aims to reassure those affected by domestic abuse that support services remain available during this difficult and uncertain time.
We have also teamed up with the Mandala Project and have listed organisations and support services for anyone that has been a victim of domestic violence.
If you are going through a dark period, just know that you are not alone and help is closer than you think. We believe in you.
If you are a DMU student who has been affected by Domestic Abuse you can access support through the Mandala Project when DMU is open by calling our phone line between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday
