Third annual 'Dress in Yellow Day' for Victim Support

Victim Support Isle of Man is encouraging people to take part in 'Dress in Yellow' Day on Friday, February 5.

The event is being held as part of Sexual Abuse and Sexual Violence Awareness Week.

However due to  recent Covid restrictions it will now get underway online.

The charity is encouraging local organisations, big and small, to take part as a teamwhile working from home. 

During the Island's first lockdown Victim Support saw a sharp upsurge in referrals and contacts with increased pressure on its services and the charity expects the current lockdown to follow the same trend.

In the 3-month period from June to September 2020, referrals were up 85% and contacts were up 91% compared to previous 3 months. 

In addition, domestic abuse cases were up 72% compared with the same period in 2019.
 
Victim Support is an Independent Isle of Man charity, which offers free and confidential help to victims and witnesses of crime, their family and friends.
 
For anyone interested in getting involved in the Dress in Yellow Day, or to make a donation you can contact kerry@victimsupport.im or call 679950.
