      Why are there none? They should be mainstream in shopping centres like cancer research etc, and have an information section where women can find out about getting help. The clothing can also be used for women and children when in the refuge. I’m wondering if there’s still a taboo, like there once was with cancer. Now cancer charity shops are normal. It would also bring the topic into the public domain? Any theories?

      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.
