North Devon is set to receive more than £200,000 of government funding to support survivors of domestic abuse.
The funding will be used to provide safe places to stay for survivors and their families who are at risk of violence or abuse.
The Devon and Cornwall Community Safety Strategic Assessment reported that in 2018/19 there were nearly 30,000 domestic abuse incidents (crimes and non-crimes) in the region.
If you, or someone you know is experiencing domestic abuse you can call the Devon Domestic Abuse Service Helpline on 0345 155 1074.
Referrals can be made directly by individuals or by agencies on behalf of their clients on the above number or by secure email at firstname.lastname@example.org
