The Minister for Community Safety and Legal Affairs, Roseanna Cunningham MSP, will launch a new project to help support domestic abuse victims in the Scottish Borders.
The 'Pathway Project' will consist of three new services, all specifically designed to provide help and support to adults and children who have encountered domestic abuse.
Almost 1.5 million pounds worth of funding has been given by the Scottish Government, BIG Lottery and local key partners to develop the Pathway Project.
