New service launched for domestic violence victims
A new confidential service for domestic violence victims is being launched today.
The 'Safe Space' initiative will be available at Boots pharmacies, and will see a consultation room provided for women.
It's free to use and will have a helpline with access to all the major support groups around the country.
Sharon O'Halloran, co-chairperson of Safe Ireland, says it's another important step to help people suffering domestic abuse.
"While lockdown has been eased, I still think it's a case where women are finding it very difficult to reach out to services.
"So what we're trying to do is reach into her, bring voice and visibility to this issue, and we're trying to mobilise communities to support her.
"I think this is a really really good initiative."
