Cabinet Member for Community Safety Jeanie Bell today hosted a Domestic Abuse Summit at the World of Glass, which as well as Council staff was attended by partner agencies including Mersey Police, Torus, and St Helens CCG.
Cllr Bell, who in July brought a motion to St Helens Council resolving to make a stand against domestic abuse (see https://www.sthelenslabour.org/latest-news/2019/07/12/st-helens-labour-call-for-action-to-tackle-domestic-violence/) opened the event and welcomed guests, calling on them to work together to provide a borough-wide solution to tackling the issue.
Under Jeanie’s leadership on this issue, St Helens Council will be developing a Domestic Abuse Strategy.
Councillor Jeanie Bell says: “To the many organisations who took part in today’s summit, I would like to say thank you – your support means so much.
Working together we can start to address this issue and make a real difference in our communities.”
