Today the Government has announced £1,165,000 to support individuals and children who need access to life-saving support such as therapy, advocacy and counselling in safe accommodation, including refuges in Leicestershire and Rutland.
As part of our new Domestic Abuse Bill we’ve placed a new duty on Councils to ensure victims and their children are able to access life-saving support in safe accommodation, and this funding will support this.
If you are in need of support, please reach out. You are not alone. Call 0808 802 0028 for support from United Against Violence and Abuse, or 101 for advice from the Police.
