“We should remember that domestic violence remains a tragic reality for many people. Now is the time to put an end to violence in the home and do all we can to protect children from abuse – not cut back on crucial services for the most vulnerable in our communities.”
So said Caroline Lucas MP on hearing the news that Sussex-based domestic violence charity Rise is facing the threat of losing its child support worker since funding ended on March 31. Anna Young, the worker under threat, is campaigning to save her job, and therefore Rise’s entire child support service. Anna has set up an online fundraising campaign called ‘Savemyjob’ which she hopes will raise enough money to keep this service going.
