This is a good point. I think it is a combination of taboo and just total lack of understanding around dv. Most people think dv is obvious and that women (or men) who put up with it are stupid. Maybe there are a few charity shops scattered around the country. Also I would guess that the people managing refuges etc might be too busy to set up charity shops. maybe these charities don’t have so many volunteers as cancer and animal charities. Lots of people want to help with the obvious charities but there is much less sympathy for dv survivors.
