Making sure residents feel safer in Ipswich is a priority.
Today I visited Lighthouse Women’s Aid centre, a fantastic organisation which provides accommodation for women and children fleeing domestic abuse. Their advice centre helps 200 women every month.
Sadly, over lockdown we have seen a rise in cases of domestic abuse, as vulnerable individuals are less able to spend time outside the home. During this period, the work of organisations like Lighthouse Aid have become even more vital to those in need.
