Online resources to provide help and advice to victims of domestic violence were launched at City Hall last week.

Thanks to funding of £5,000 from the South Belfast District PCSP and £2,000 from the East Belfast PCSP, Belfast and Lisburn Women’s Aid, Belfast Domestic Violence Partnership and the Men’s Advisory Project, were each able to make vital improvements to their websites, making them much more accessible for users and enabling them to access help on mobile phones or tablets.

Tackling domestic violence is one of the key objectives of the PCSP’s action plan, and by providing this funding they believe more victims will be able to access support. The funding has also facilitated a self-referral function on the sites, allowing victims to refer themselves to these groups for support.

At the event, the agencies showcased their new sites and gave the audience trial runs on web stations set up around the hall.
