Find out how to prevent domestic abuse at Colchester event
1:11pm Tuesday 10th September 2013 in News
INFORMATION about preventing domestic abuse will be available at a drop-in event this month.
Organisations including Colchester Council, Essex Police, Colchester Women’s Refuge and Victim Support will offer information outside the Halifax in Culver Street West on Tuesday, September 24 from 9am to 4pm.
Colchester Council’s other projects helping victims of domestic abuse include the Sanctuary Scheme, which installs safety equipment in homes, and an education pack aimed at teenagers which will shortly be given to secondary schools.
Work is also underway on an emergency pet fostering scheme, as victims are often afraid to leave an abusive relationship if they must leave a pet behind.
