The west London club have also pledged to match all donations to Refuge UK over the next six weeks to help raise funds for the charity.Experts are warning coronavirus will cause a “domestic abuse pandemic” – last year 1.3m women were victim to domestic abuse in the UK – because self-isolation is likely trigger pre-existing abusive behaviours as well as reducing the window women have to report abuse and seek help.

Chelsea Men’s captain Cesar Azpilicueta added: “Domestic violence is such a serious issue in society and we must double our efforts to look after those in danger during this ongoing pandemic.

“I am so proud of my club for supporting Refuge in its vital work protecting vulnerable women and children.

Refuge is a United Kingdom charity providing specialist support for women and children experiencing domestic violence. Refuge provides a national network of specialist services, including emergency refuge accommodation (refuges), community outreach, independent domestic violence advocacy (IDVAs), culturally specific services and a team of child support workers. Refuge also runs the Freephone 24-Hour National Domestic Violence Helpline in partnership with Women’s Aid.[3]

Chelsea Foundation has also launched a learning resource for people looking to keep their children active and engaged while at home.
