My story

I am running the Oxford Half Marathon on Sunday 17th October 2021 - ON MY OWN! This is going to be a massive mental challenge for me and I would love all the support that I can get from anyone of you in the form of a donation or a wave and cheer on the day....

As many of you now, I am a survivor of Domestic Abuse & Domestic Violence and successfully got myself and my children out and free. We are all learning to grow, recover and heal from our traumas, which is not a quick fix but we are getting there. Ultimately, we are now safe. Reducing the Risk helped us massively during our journey by providing us with an IDVA (Independent Domestic Violence Advisor). I could not have continued my journey to freedom without our IDVA, she was always there with sound and solid advice and support and I will be eternally grateful to her and Reducing the Risk, so I would like to try and give something back and try to help someone else receive the expert advice and support that I did.

Reducing the Risk are an Oxfordshire-based charity committed to strengthening the community’s capacity to reduce the risk of domestic abuse and ensure the safety and wellbeing of victims and survivors. We provide safe, confidential support for as long as needed for everyone in Oxfordshire at high risk through abuse, and work with other services to identify emerging needs and develop responsive new programmes.

Reducing the Risk acts as a resource hub for practitioners and volunteers. They provide training and link staff and volunteers into multi-agency networks working together to support adults and children at risk of harm.

If you are able to support me (and them), then please know how much this means to people like myself who didn't know the right way up and was supported to find my way. If you are unable to donate but would like to help, I would love to have some support on the day. Please come and cheer me on, wave, sing, dance, scream, or just get me a gin at the end!!! Thank you Hazel xx

Thank you for checking out my page. Making a donation is fast, easy and secure thanks to Give as you Live Donate. They'll take your donation and pass it onto Reducing the Risk of Domestic Abuse.
