This year’s theme for White Ribbon Day is #ChangetheStory, encouraging us to make consistent choices and actions to #ChangeTheStory for all survivors, so that they can live their lives free from the fear of abuse.

Abuse takes many forms. Some behaviours and words may seem ‘harmless’ but normalising them ignores the short- and long-term effects and can lead to more extreme violence.

Southern Housing is committed to tackling domestic abuse. If you, or someone you know is experiencing domestic abuse, please contact us.

We’ll treat all reports seriously and in a non-judgemental way. One of our officers will make contact within one working day and will work with you on an action plan.

Read more about how we can help.

If you're still unsure, take a moment to look at the testimonial below. 

From 1st November changes will come in allowing medical records to be automatically available on the NHS app.

Important advice from Refuge to speak to your GP if you have any concerns about someone accessing your health data:

Refuge say:

“The lack of publicity around these changes means that some survivors records may already be available in the NHS app, and they do not even know it.

It is essential that these changes are publicised widely, so that survivors know to take the necessary precautions to improve their safety and privacy.

Our message to survivors is simple. Call your GP surgery and ask that access to your records be switched off, so that they cannot be viewed in the app. If you are concerned, and it is safe for you to do so, please also consider deleting the NHS app from your device.”
