With everyone locked in over the pandemic, violence at home have reached an all-time high with the National Domestic Abuse Helpline reporting that there was a 65% increase in calls between April and June 2020 compared to the first three months of the year, and RISE specifically reporting demand for their services had increased by 200% since the beginning of lockdown.
By supporting RISE we are providing practical help for those in the Brighton & Hove area to offer preventative and recovery support services to those who need it.
Every year they support over 2,000 women and their families to recover and reclaim their lives. Over Christmas 2021, the Star Property Group donated over 105 toys and raised just under £4,000 to support RISE UK.
