Michaela Boyle MLA hosts abuse sectoral meeting
Michaela Boyle MLA today hosted a delegation of organisations working with victims of Domestic and Sexual Violence and Abuse
Speaking after the event Michaela Boyle said: “Often people do not realise how prolific sexual violence is and sometimes the hardest thing for somebody who has experienced domestic and sexual violence and abuse is to tell another person about their experience. It is essential that victims and survivors have access to appropriate services.
“Today I and my party colleagues had the vital opportunity to hear first-hand from organisations working directly with victims and survivors. These organisations are providing life-saving services to women and children. The groups put forward a strong argument for a coherent multi-agency response to domestic and sexual violence and abuse and the need for sustainable funding across the sector.”
