Drivers play a crucial role on our SWAN Evening Outreach Project as without them we can’t reach outreach locations and deliver much needed support, food and drink to vulnerable women. But they don’t just drive the outreach van, they also assist in support, record information and their vigilance helps keep the team and the community safe. If you’re interested in this role and have a standard full UK driver’s license then get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Lorna, our Volunteer Coordinator, on 07436125855. ...

When you think of loneliness, what’s the image that comes to mind?
How often do you picture a woman who has experienced domestic abuse? There are very strong links between domestic abuse and violence against women and girls, and feelings of loneliness and isolation among women and children affected.
In the case of domestic abuse, social isolation is a specific tactic used by a perpetrator to gain control over their victim. A perpetrator may use emotional manipulation to distance the victim from friends or family, sowing disconnection that prevents the victim from being able to seek help and others noticing that something isn’t right.
Those affected by domestic abuse, sexual violence, and violence against women also face barriers to overcoming loneliness and social isolation due to responsibilities, financial barriers, and cultural stigma.
Women from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds, LGBTQIA+ people,
or those with disabilities, might face even further loneliness and social isolation when seeking support.
Exposure to violence and trauma can sadly have lasting impacts on how an individual connects with others. Such as lack of trust and feelings of fear.
It is also difficult for those affected to go on “as normal” and participate in social interactions when dealing with the long-term impacts of domestic abuse.
This could lead to increased social withdrawal, and even greater feelings of loneliness at a time when support is needed most.
