Slide Work and Safety WORK & SAFETY Lots of or survivors tell us they left work because
they felt embarrassed or were unable to function
because of the abuse that they were experiencing.

Your ability to live free form abuse and thrive in work
is important. LDAS can support you with this.

Our survivors have told us work was a place of safety

but they felt they could not speak to their employers or colleagues about what was happening.

Some workplaces have schemes to support employees who may be living with abuse.

LDAS can support you if want to speak to your employer. We can support you to continue to work in a manner that keeps you as safe as possible. Please contact us for support.

We have also put together a helpful download that you can print off, fill in and refer back to at any point.
