PORTSMOUTH has been awarded more than £300,000 to fund a project to support families affected by domestic violence and abuse.
The project, titled Domestic Violence and Abuse Holistic Family Intervention, is a partnership between Portsmouth City Council, with Hampshire County Council, Hampshire Constabulary, Health and the Southern Domestic Abuse Service.
They have developed a model to provide support and intervention to all family members with the aim of reducing the cycle of domestic violence and abuse.
Local government minister Kris Hopkins announced organisations in the south east will share more than £6m investment in service improvements.
The county council has also been given £3.1m to fund the implementation of its digital strategy – changing its way of doing things to help save money.
