Woman's Trust Embraces Equity
Heidi Riedel, Chief Executive Officer, Woman's Trust
We have been working with women survivors of domestic abuse for 26 years.
In that time this problem has grown, and we have an ever-increasing demand for our free, specialist counselling and therapies.
In the last few years, the Covid pandemic and the cost-of-living crisis have impacted dramatically on a rise in women being trapped in abusive relationships.
Woman's Trust is proud to support International Women's Day and I #EmbraceEquity.
For me, equity would mean that access to specialist mental health counselling for survivors of domestic abuse would no longer be a postcode lottery.
It would be accessible to women wherever they lived.
