Netball SW

1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men experience abuse in their lifetime

Our Partnership


We are thrilled to be partnered with Netball South West. Together we:

  1. Will be spreading vital awareness of abuse, encouraging people across the South-West to openly talk about it and break the taboo.
  2. Will be training members to recognise the signs of abuse so they can help any team mate affected by it and support them to get the help they need right away.
  3. Will raise vital funds to support local families impacted by abuse, helping to rebuild their life free from fear and abuse... permanently.

Hear from people we've helped

In 2021, my children and I fled domestic abuse. We experienced first hand how much of a difference the support and care of FearFree made to our healing journey. Words can not describe how extremely hard and tough those first months were. FearFree helped practical, mentally and supportively.

I think of your service like a lighthouse. We are out at sea on a boat trying to survive and I honestly think we’d have lost our way without you. But at the scariest time when I didn’t know what to do next and how to survive, you put the light on and guided me and my children safely back to shore.

My support worker has shown us tremendous love and understanding, her genuine care and concern has provided me with comfort during the darkest of times and have served as a guiding light in my journey towards recovery.

Understanding Abuse

Domestic abuse affects more woman than breast cancer. However it's rarely spoken about and people often suffer for years without the help they need. You can change that. Visit our pages to learn more about abuse and find useful information if you or a team mate needs help.

Safety Planning

Responsibility for abusive behaviour always sits with the abuser - NEVER the victim or children.

The most important thing is to keep yourself (and your children) as safe as possible.
