Living Without Abuse are a local charity which helps men, women and children in and around Leicestershire who have had their lives shattered by domestic abuse.

We’re unique in what we do – providing specialist support for those left traumatised and often physically harmed by their former partners. We provide one to one support work along with running group programmes. We can provide help and support with theraputic counselling services, housing, legal issues, parenting, finances, building self confidence and helping people to understand domestic abuse and sexual violence.

** THE LOUGHBOROUGH HALF MARATHON IS OPEN TO ENTRIES FOR 2020** SUNDAY 29th MARCH

The Loughborough Half Marathon & Team Relay

Sunday 29th March 2020 sees the return of The Loughborough half marathon and team relay. The 13.1mile course has been described as one of the toughest in the East Midlands. Available places are hotly contested, with only 800 up for grabs this year.

Organised by the Loughborough based charity Living Without Abuse, all the money raised from the event goes towards the charity’s vital and much needed work of supporting men, women and children who have had their lives shattered by domestic abuse.

CLIC Sargent have just launched their World Cancer Day Campaign and are looking for volunteers to help them fundraise on the 1-4th of February.

There are opportunities throughout Leicestershire to help out in local Morrisons stores and we have also secured street permits on those dates for Oakham, Uppingham and Market Harbough as well as Leicester City Centre, including routes to the LCFC stadium on the Saturday. Volunteers must be over 18 to take part in these collections (they can be 16 and 17 if they're with a parent or guardian).
