International Womens Day Sea Dip success

We did it! On International Women's Day, at high tide, the Heads On team dipped in the seas of Worthing for 1.6 minutes to raise awareness of the 1.6 women experiencing domestic abuse each year. 

We wanted to join the international #breakthebias movement - raising awareness against bias and promoting equality, diversity and inclusion.

For the one in four women who experience domestic abuse, the mental health impact can be profound and long-lasting. 

All funds raised will go towards supporting NHS Staff and service user survivors of domestic abuse at Sussex Partnership.

Rachael Duke, Head of Charity at Heads On, said:

"For International Women's Day we want to raise awareness of domestic abuse and celebrate the amazing achievements of survivors of domestic abuse.

All women should be able to live lives free from abuse and to access the support they need to recover, without fear of being judged for their experiences.

"By building awareness and understanding, we hope to create a more compassionate world that support's women's recovery and puts their needs first. 

A huge thanks to everyone who sponsors us."
