The cuts in funding for Domestic Violence & Abuse (DVA) services are causing widespread closure of services, resulting in a detrimental domino effect on the experiences of adult and child victims. One of the services which has been facing closures in recent years, which has now reached a very critical point, is that of refuges (safe houses) for adult and child victims.
In their special report today on this matter, Channel 5 News interviewed our Founder Director Kudakwashe Nyakudya. Drawing from her own personal experience, she boldly spoke about how refuges have saved the lives of women and children year after year.
It is crucial to recognise that refuges are a life line, which must remain available for victims. The closure of refuges across the UK has and will continue to worsen the suffering adult and child victims experience in an immeasurable way.
