NEW DOMESTIC ABUSE SUPPORT SERVICE LAUNCHED
This service, provided by an independent charity called Domestic Abuse Volunteer Support Services grew out of initiatives taken by Sevenoaks Churches Together and is supported by Community Safety Partnerships across West Kent, seeks to provide help to anyone, female or male, who is experiencing domestic abuse. 1 in 4 women, and 1 in 6 men will experience this at some time in their lives, so the need is very real.
Trained volunteers, supported by professionals will offer a listening ear, tailored advice and practical help.
