A domestic abuse charity is to be renamed to help make it more accessible to both male and female victims.
Berkshire East and South Bucks Women’s Aid is changing its name to The Dash Charity, with the organisation going through a complete rebrand in July.
Tessa Osman, head of sustainability and development, said: "The charity is well known in the area but we feel our name is not fully identifiable for all who can benefit from our services.
"As we support men as well as women and children we felt our theme didn't evoke that - we wanted to make them accessible to everyone."
So far, the charity has only confirmed its new name, which stands for Domestic Abuse Stops Here (DASH) as the rebranding is in its early stages.
It provides help and support for those affected by domestic abuse.
