Women’s Aid: A Bill for Survivors

Women’s Aid has released new statistics revealing that domestic abuse services are being forced to run their vital therapeutic support without any dedicated funding, while survivors desperate for help are unable to access the support they need to rebuild their lives after experiencing domestic abuse. The government is set to announce draft legislation for its domestic abuse bill at any moment. To coincide with 16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence, commencing on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, Women’s Aid has released ‘A Bill for Survivors’, based on survivors’ and Women’s Aid member services’ needs, setting out the priorities for the forthcoming legislation.
