UK: The Haven a Haven

From the Birmingham Mail:
Statistics show one in four women will experience domestic violence from a violent partner at some point in their lifetime.

In Wolverhampton, The Haven has five refuges for women and dependent children and is able to cater for nearly 50 people at a time.

That care package involves more than a safe roof over their heads, says family support worker Charlotte Lloyd. Women are also offered counselling, signposting to other services and outreach support when they are able to move on.
