Swim For Solace

Today we launch our very first #SwimForSolace swimming challenge. 

Swim throughout June to help us raise funds and raise awareness of male violence against women. Whether it’s in your local lido or the crisp British sea, get swimming to support women.
Research has shown that on average, a woman is assaulted 35 times before the police are called. That’s 35 too many. Domestic abuse is a cycle of behaviour and a cycle of violence. The repetition of events only makes it harder for someone to leave, get the help they need and the support they deserve. This June, you can help us end this cycle. 

Come and swim 35 times or 35 minutes or 35 lengths with us.

Services like ours are vital to ensure long-lasting support is offered to ensure women don’t experience abuse again. For Solace, this means being able to provide accommodation to those fleeing their home, therapeutic services to help overcome years of trauma, support navigating their legal and housing options and advocating for local and national change through the laws that should protect all women and girls.
Sign up early and you won’t miss out on our special swim pack:
A Solace Tote Bag
Solace Swim hat
Solace carry cup – with a unique watery design by a child in one of our refuges
