Glow wins over £95k to help domestic abuse victims
This vital funding will help Glow continue the work we are doing to end domestic abuse and fund the extra demand brought by the virus.

We’ve secured over £95k of government funding to help us continue to support people experiencing domestic abuse.

The £95,540 is part of the £10m made available by the government to support providers of safe accommodation during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Glow offer vital refuge and safe accommodation for victims of domestic abuse. Since the pandemic, we’ve been working hard to adapt so that we can keep accommodation open without compromising the wellbeing of our customers and staff.

This vital funding will help Glow continue the work we are doing to end domestic abuse and fund the extra demand and adaptions brought by the virus.

Lucy Willis, Head of Domestic Abuse Services at Glow, said: “These funds have brought welcome relief given the significant financial impact that making the necessary changes have caused our charity and will ensure that victims and their families continue to have somewhere to turn if they need to find safe accommodation in an emergency.

“As lockdown eases we anticipate that there will be an increase in victims feeling they are able, or having the opportunity, to leave abusive relationships and in response to this we are using some of the funds awarded to us to temporarily increase the number of safe accommodation units we have available.”

We’re currently working with a private landlord to get extra accommodation in the community. This will be available alongside support from our expert domestic abuse practitioners, which means residents will not only have immediate safety, but the best chance of moving towards a life that is free from abuse.
