Domestic Abuse Services In Derbyshire Receive Funding Boost

by Amber Valley Info on Saturday 2 February 2019



Victims of domestic abuse are set to get more help and support as Derbyshire County Council secures more than £700,000 in funding for services.




Over the next few years the money will be used to support and expand a number of projects and initiatives to give people additional support and advice.

This includes:


Derbyshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Health and Communities Councillor Carol Hart said this was great news for the county.
She added: “It’s vitally important that victims of domestic abuse know where to turn when they need help.

“This funding will mean that more people in the county can get advice and support from professionals as and when they need it.
“It will enable us to build on the good work we’ve been doing in the county keeping residents safe from harm.”

The funding was jointly applied for by the county council and partners including the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner, district and borough councils and a number of voluntary organisations.

Anyone experiencing domestic abuse or who knows someone who might be can call Derbyshire’s free confidential domestic abuse support line on 08000 198 668 or find out more about county council support services at www.saferderbyshire.gov.uk/domesticabusesupport
