Songs of Praise presenter Katie Piper has been announced as Women's Aid's newest charity Ambassador.
The TV presenter author and campaigner made the announcement on Twitter, Sunday, to coincide with International Day of the Girl.
"As their Ambassador, I ask today that you will join with us to stand with survivors of domestic abuse, as all women & girls deserve to live a life free from fear & abuse." she tweeted.
In a statement on the Women's Aid website, Nicki Norman, acting chief executive at Women’s Aid said they were excited to welcome Katie on board.
"As a long-time supporter of our work and a tireless campaigner and activist, we look forward to working with Katie to raise awareness of the countless women and girls surviving domestic abuse or recovering from the trauma of domestic abuse. We extend our huge thanks to Katie for her continued commitment to empowering survivors of abuse."
Katie added: "Under the theme of My Voice, Our Equal Future, one of the key focuses of this International Day of the Girl is the demand from adolescent girls across the world to be able to live free from gender-based violence. As a Women’s Aid Ambassador, I support its work towards this goal, including its Love Respect project which provides young people with all the information they need to recognise unhealthy behaviour in relationships and give them the tools and support to know what to do about it."
Women's Aid offers information and support on what is healthy and unhealthy in relationships, along with survivor stories and practical advice.
It was confirmed in September that Katie Piper was joining the presenter line-up of Songs Of Praise.
The 36-year-old presenter, author, activist and model, who suffered life-changing burns in an acid attack in March 2008, first appeared on Songs Of Praise as a contributor with her mother Diane in a special Mother's Day edition in March, in which she shared her experience of finding faith.
