North Devon Against Domestic Abuse
A small local charity providing refuge for women and children fleeing domestic abuse in fear of their lives.
North Devon Against Domestic Abuse (NDADA) has launched an emergency appeal for funding after a sharp rise in domestic abuse referrals across Devon during the second half of this year. The appeal aims to ensure women and children facing violence can escape to safety at the charity's refuge. The North Devon-based refuge is the only one of its kind in Devon.
We receive no dedicated public funding so, to look after those who have fled their homes, we need your help.
