9 July 2020: Response to government announcement about domestic abuse survivors
Responding to the government’s announcement about providing greater protection to survivors of domestic abuse and their children, Helena Doyle, Customer Experience Director at Stonewater, said:
“Across our specialist refuges, we see first-hand from our residents just how harrowing the process of going through family court can be for a survivor of domestic abuse and so we are glad that the voices of those affected, are finally being heard.
“Every day the family courts see some of the most vulnerable in society and we have a duty to ensure they are protected and not put in danger. We believe the recommendations made within this report are essential to deliver the much-needed change that’s vital to shift the culture of the family courts.”
