This petition has been started by Women's Aid to ask the government to protect refuges after significant cuts have meant they've had to turn many women away. Lots of talk about it on Twitter so please do share.

More info on the link

"^Our world-leading national network of specialist refuges is in a crisis. Across England, specialist refuges are closing or being replaced by non-specialist providers because of funding cuts and poor local commissioning decisions.

We want the Government to commit to preserving the national network of specialist refuges and exploring a new model of funding and commissioning for refuges which supports a sustainable service and high quality care. Without refuges, women will have nowhere to go to flee domestic violence. This crisis will cost lives. We must act now.^"

Just to say this petition is still live, and they still need about 20,000 more signatures - so get signing and sharing sisters!
