The cost of support for victims
Womens Aid recently posted this information: Demand for highly stretched domestic abuse services continues to rise. But without sustainable funding, many face the awful reality of turning away more women or closing forever.
We want to make sure women get the support they need to escape abuse and live independent lives, free from fear. No woman should be turned away from support when she needs it the most.
Our research sets out the investment needed to build a safe and sustainable future for the life-saving services that support survivors and children.
Properly funding domestic abuse services will cost just a fraction of the staggering £66 billion pounds domestic abuse costs our society every year https://bit.ly/2pCxBqz
