Welcome to the latest edition of the AWAVA Weekly Round-Up. This week, as the violence against women death toll continues to rise, we are also hearing of the increasing demand experienced by services that support women and children escaping violence. Many telephone counselling, legal support and crisis accommodation services are unable to meet the increasing demands on their services that result from the growing awareness of domestic violence within the community. These services are calling for increased funding to ensure that those at risk of violence can access the services and support they require.
