Funding for Derry abuse project

A project in Derry to support women and families affected by domestic abuse and addiction have been given a £70,000 funding boost.

The money from the Department of Social Development will be used to create two core posts - a harm reduction worker and a women’s advocacy worker - for the Dove House Trust managed project.

Trust Manager Brónach McMonagle said: “The project will offer outreach support, advocacy services, group support, therapeutic interventions and much more.”
