£9,000 has been awarded for the Irish/Irish Traveller Domestic Violence Project. This contributes towards a specialist Case Worker to provide individual and group support to Irish Traveller women and children who are affected by domestic and sexual violence. The project aims to help these vulnerable and marginalised women and children to flee abuse, live safely and recover from trauma.
The programme runs in partnership with The Traveller Movement which will deliver an advocacy training programme to build Irish and Traveller women’s skills and abilities as advocates to provide support to vulnerable young Traveller women and children.
Solace Women’s Aid provides services across London which addresses the support needs of women and children affected by domestic and sexual violence. It provides specialist services in the community and in refuges, to women, children and young people (including dedicated support to Irish and Irish Traveller families.)
