Domestic Violence Service for Men to Close
6:01am 9th November 2011
A service supporting male victims of domestic abuse in Cornwall is to close.
Esteem in Truro is shutting because its funding runs out at the end of the year.
The service has already reduced levels of cover and is turning away new referrals.
Founder Andrew Baker says it is a huge loss, "Some describe it as having saved their lives, for others it has enabled them to move on to healthier relationships. For some it is still ongoing so, over the next few months, there are going to be men who need help who won't get it."
The scheme has a last ditch bid for funding being considered by the lottery but says that will not be decided until February or March when money will already have run out.6:01am 9th November 2011
