Solace and Justice Studio have launched a new report on Covid-19 lockdown and domestic abuse “When I needed you to protect me, you gave him more power instead.” This report is the result of a collaborative research project between Solace Woman’s Aid and Justice Studio Ltd with assistance from the University of Greenwich.
We are proud to release our Impact Report for the year ending March 2019, showcasing the amazing work we did across all boroughs of London from April 2018 to March 2019.
We're really pleased to release our Impact report for 2020 exploring the impact our services have had between April 2019 and March 2020.
We know that domestic and sexual abuse affects everyone, across all communities and that coming forward to seek help can be so difficult. This was why we began to create champions, training people from across sectors to be equipped to spot the signs of abuse and take action.

This guide was developed by a socio-technical research team at University College London. It covers how internet-connected devices can affect victims of domestic and sexual violence and abuse and is aimed at frontline workers and support services working to support those affected.
A resource list is also available as supplementary material to better inform and guide victims of tech abuse.
Solace Women’s Aid has conducted research into the housing pathways of women and children survivors of domestic abuse who have come through Solace refuges. This research highlights systemic unfairness and discrimination against women and children fleeing domestic abuse in London.
A new pilot partnership between Solace Women’s Aid, Commonweal Housing and Southwark Council reports major benefits for vulnerable women fleeing domestic abuse. An interim evaluation of the Rhea project has highlighted strong partnership working and a vital combination of safe, suitable housing, holistic emotional and practical support, as integral to the project.
Key Findings from the Evaluation
This report provides an evaluation of the Silver Project, which aims to minimise the risk of violence and abuse for older survivors of domestic and sexual violence.
The Silver project worked with over 120 older women affected by domestic and sexual violence between Oct 2013 and Jan 2016. The evaluation has demonstrated that the project’s beneficiaries are safer, healthier, less isolated and more confident as a result of their engagement with the project.
