CHARITY chiefs supporting victims of domestic violence in East Devon have met with county councillors to fight against massive cuts to their funding.

Abuse support services in Devon face funding cuts of 42 per cent to their frontline services.

Stop Abuse for Everyone (SAFE) are a Devon-wide charity who aim to prevent children and adults from suffering violence at home.

Manager of SAFE Chris Pearson said: “Last year we were able to help nearly four thousand people in Devon, including direct support to over 500 children. Under these proposals, sadly, that level of support just won’t be possible anymore.”
