Women’s Aid’s survey reveals impact of cuts

National domestic violence charity Women’s Aid has launched the results of their survey of the effects of the proposed cuts to domestic and sexual violence services.


The survey  shows that:

  • 60% of refuge services have no funding agreed from 1st April 2011
  • 72% of outreach services have no funding agreed from 1st April 2011.


Two women every week in England and Wales are already killed by a former or current partner and proposed cuts will mean a significant reduction in lifesaving services for those affected by violence in the home.


Comparisons of this special survey with Annual Survey figures for refuge and outreach use for 2009/10 suggest that nationally over 70,000 women, and their children, might not be able to access a service after April 2011, putting more lives at risk.
