Charity Swap Shop

14 June 2013, from 5.30pm at Exeter Phoenix

Get a new summer wardrobe without spending a fortune, and help those affected by domestic abuse at the same time!

For £5, you can turn up at Exeter Phoenix on 14 June from 5.30pm, and for everything item you bring, you can exchange it for something new. Plus if you run out of clothes to swap, you can take home any other item in return for a donation to SAFE.

What is SAFE?

SAFE stands for Stop Abuse for Everyone. It is the only charity in the area that specialises in the support and protection of women, men, children and young people affected by domestic violence.

In the last 10 years the Refuge in Exeter has offered safe accommodation to 916 women and 943 children and young people escaping domestic violence and abuse.

Domestic abuse makes up 24% of total recorded violent crime in Devon with Devon and Cornwall Police. Home Office statistics show that 2 women on average are killed by a male partner or former partner every week in the UK. All children and young people at the Refuge have been adversely affected in some way by living in an atmosphere of abuse. For these victims being able to access safe Refuge accommodation and specialised help is vital.
