At home should not mean at risk.

The Home Office has launched a campaign to reach out to those suffering domestic abuse during this period of lockdown, to let them know that #YouAreNotAlone

They are asking for the public's help to spread the message by taking a picture of a heart drawn onto the palm of your hand and sharing it across your social media network, along with the hashtag #YouAreNotAlone and links to sources of support.

A list of online and telephone support services is currently available on our website www.northyorkshire.police.uk/DAsupport - but to make it easier to share, here are some links to other sources of support and help;

www.IDAS.org.uk - Independent Domestic Abuse Services - 03000 110 110

www.nationaldahelpline.org.uk - National Domestic Abuse Helpline - helpline open 24/7 - 0808 2000 247

www.supportingvictims.org - Supporting Victims in North Yorkshire

www.mensadviceline.org.uk - Men's Advice Line

Our team has seen so much kindness in our community this week, ppl helping those feeling alone to feel connected. @YorkCVS volunteers doing welfare calls , @yorkcarers going the extra mile, the generosity of spirt from @acts435, @MTMcharity & @suppercollectiv. #KindnessMatters

Another top well-being tip from our staff as part of #mentalhealthawarenessweek. Working from home can be challenging on mental health, no office chats, or cuppas with a colleague. Keeping routine, taking breaks, and doing something you enjoy can really help.

It’s #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek and this year’s theme is #kindness. This is a powerful poem by the very talented Lauren, @TtcYork Champion #KindnessMatters https://twitter.com/TtcYork/status/1262284708295118848

@YorkBikeBelles @EdibleYork @W2WYork @AbundanceYork @Fr_RowntreePark @York_Allotments @FlowerPowerYork @YUMIYork @FishpondsWood Very cool! Similarly, I think @Fr_RowntreePark are also seeking volunteers to grow plants at home to be added to the park at a later date...? 💚 the idea of bedding 'fostering'; wonder if this could also be done for Hull Road Park...? @HullRoadWard @Michael4HullRd

Don't forget to check your local seed stations on your daily walk this weekend. 17 locations! Hope there is one near you.
PS. If you can 'adopt' your local one and let us know if it is looking empt <3 (it is getting a little bigger than we anticipated!) https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?hl=en&mid=1u77fwjJ3buXg-Sh87YAoFMvFvMAX9HRP&ll=53.94776305954946%2C-1.077077282125856&z=14
