The Domestic Abuse Safety Unit in Deeside this week took delivery of some new collection boxes, which will be passed on to local businesses who want to support the charity. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The Shotton-based unit offers a lifeline and vital support network to people escaping violent and abusive domestic situations and is currently helping more than 150 Flintshire families. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Alyn and Deeside AM Carl Sargeant, who has worked with the unit for several years, said: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“I’m really pleased that DASU have set up their own collection boxes and that local businesses will have a chance to show their support for their work. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Many people are still not fully aware of the fantastic work of the DASU staff and I hope this fundraising drive will help to raise the unit’s profile. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“This service is saving lives in Flintshire every year and I would urge local companies to get involved in the fight against domestic abuse by setting up a collection box at their premises.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

For more information or to request a box, contact DASU on 01244 830436 ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
