Longford Women’s Link will be offering support over the festive season

Longford Women’s Link will be offering support to women experiencing abuse over the festive season.

The organisation’s Domestic Violence Service will be operating on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (27th,28th,29th) from 10am to 4pm to help women facing what are described as “very toxic” or violent situations.

During 2017 the service supported around 300 women which included accompanying those who went to court to seek legal back-up.

Angela Keaveney, co-ordinator of the Domestic Violence Service says the telephone line will be manned but there’ll only be a skeleton staff on duty so women ringing may need to be patient to get through.
