We are delighted to announce that we have formed a new partnership with Leicestershire Women’s Aid (WALL) to help tackle domestic abuse in racially minoritised communities. The partnership has already attracted funding through the Leicestershire Police and Crime Commissioner, which will help us to deliver outreach support into local communities.
Afro Innovation Group Projects Director, Evariste Tschindio said “Regrettably, Covid-19 has seen an increase in levels of domestic abuse throughout all walks of society. AIG is really pleased to be able to work with WALL to provide support to victims. We aim to offer practical support to help those affected understand their rights, and, of course, where necessary, help place those who are the most vulnerable and at risk to into safe accommodation.”
