No Excuse For Abuse

Abuse

9:05am 16th February 2013

One in four women will be affected by domestic violence during their lifetime - and it doesn't matter how old you are.

Wessex FM has learnt that a woman in her 80's was being given a place at a refuge in Dorset.

Yesterday support services across the county came together for an event in Dorchester called No Excuse For Abuse.

The aim of the event was to raise awareness about domestic violence and to improve links between support services for victims of domestic abuse to help them make their services more effective.
