Award for Hadleigh group

A COMMUNITY group in Hadleigh which supports victims of domestic violence has received a £5,000 award for helping people without relying on long-term public funding.

Compassion created a training DVD based on a survivor’s story to help people understand what victims of domestic violence go through.

The DVD is not only being used in Suffolk but also throughout the Commonwealth and as far afield as Japan.

The award was given by Suffolk County Council.
