ADVA Devon domestic violence service 

Location: UK » South West » EX

ADVA - Against Domestic Violence and Abuse – was set up in November 2002 to bring together the statutory and voluntary agencies within the county to tackle the problem of domestic violence. They help thousands of women and children every year escape violent and life-threatening situations.

Devon County Council proposes to cut ADVA’s budget by 100 percent as of April 2011.

If these cuts are endorsed, emerging victims may go unidentified and recovering victims may be left without support.

One in four women will be a victim of domestic violence in their lifetime – many of these on a number of occasions. One incident of domestic violence is reported to the police every minute (Women’s Aid).
