Other ways to get involved Other ways to get involved The EIDA Network The Employers Initiative on Domestic Abuse (EIDA) has established a network of hundreds of organisations, big and small, who are all working to take action on domestic abuse. EIDA hold regular network meetings throughout the year, where businesses have the opportunity to share their learnings so far, as well as to hear from professionals within the domestic abuse sector and those who have personally experienced domestic abuse. Hestia has worked closely with EIDA for several years, and we continue to work closely with them in ensuring more employers are able to support staff affected by domestic abuse. Head to EIDA’s website if you’re interested in hearing more about their work. Safe Spaces Hestia’s UK SAYS NO MORE campaign is working with pharmacies across the UK to provide Safe Spaces in their consultation rooms. Victims of domestic abuse can ask to use the consultation room in Boots, Morrisons and Superdrug pharmacies, as well as in dozens of independent pharmacies across the country. Once in a Safe Space, individuals will be able to find and contact specialist domestic abuse support services and helplines, or use the Space as somewhere to collect their thoughts or phone a loved one. Learn more about Safe Spaces here. About UK SAYS NO MORE UK SAYS NO MORE is a national campaign to raise awareness to end domestic abuse and sexual violence across the UK.
