Cuts Watch #377: Domestic violence services

08 Feb 2011, by in Cuts Watch

A survey by Women’s Aid for Channel 4 News has found that more than half the domestic violence services funded by local authorities do not know whether their funding will be cut this year or by how much. The survey found that some services – Channel 4 lists Devon, Hull, North Somerset and Nottinghamshire – have been told they may not get any funding at all. Thirty seven per cent say they face at least a “serious risk” of closure. Women’s Aid have set up a Facebook group, Saving Survivors’ Services and Nicola Harwin, their Chief Executive said:

The scary thing is, if domestic violence services are cut, there will be more risk of homicides. Two women are killed a week.
