Challenging Domestic Abuse in Bristol

Tuesday, April 24, 2007

On a recent visit to Bristol Meg visited Bristol Domestic Abuse Services to hear about their work. The project does a wide range of work to support women experiencing domestic violence, from their very first contact through the helpline. Services are tailored to support women who have to give evidence in court, to help women who need to find alternative accommodation, and help with education and training for women who are rebuilding their lives having left a violent partner.

 

As well as meeting staff, Meg met a number of women who had used the services. One woman felt that the support she received had literally saved her life, having contemplated suicide following continual harassment from a violent former partner. Others told of the help that had seen them through the difficulties of establishing their own life and earning their own living.

 

Meg said:

 

“The work being done by this project is impressive. It was moving to hear from women who had benefited from the range of services available. I was also pleased to hear that the Government’s investment in these services is really making a difference to women in places like Bristol.”

 

Meg is pictured with staff of the project and service users.
