EDAN Lincs Domestic Abuse – continuing to support during COVID-19
13 May 2020
EDAN Lincs Domestic Abuse Service provides support and assistance to men, women and children suffering, or fleeing from domestic abuse. Based in Lincolnshire the refuges offer support to the whole country as knowing no one locally is the best way to escape. EDAN Lincs also offer outreach support to the whole county of Lincolnshire.
‘The Covid19 lockdown is very difficult for anyone living in a domestic abuse situation said: Lucy W, Senior Child and Family Support Worker. We know there is a much greater need during lockdown for help and support from charities like EDAN Lincs.’
Lucy added ‘working with Sam Clark Coaching, who leads a group on Facebook called ‘The Female Furniture Painters Club’ Many of the women have creative gifts that extend beyond furniture to painting canvases and fine art. We wanted to use their considerable talents as a force for good.
‘They have all been allocated a space to create a piece for - a bedroom, communal space or hallway in the charity’s refuges - and encouraged to use whatever they have; repurposed old canvases, reclaimed wood, even windows and old frames. We hope that some pieces may even be auctioned to raise much needed funds for the charity to support more people to flee abuse and find a safe haven to start again.’
