Our refuge in Ashfield will close in 10 weeks when government funding ends. 3 others in Nott/s will face closure by the summer. The loss of any refuge puts women’s lives at risk & intolerable pressure on other refuges. We need action by the government now

Wrong that women’s refuges always year-to-year, hand-to-mouth funding. Need secure national funding base. % of GNI (like for Internat dev) . Lets put that in new DV Bill!
