Very sad sad.

Denise Marshall was the CEO until she died earlier this year.

Another women's service bites the dust in a Conservative government.

You'd think that commissioners would have learned something from the Kids Company fiasco, but it would seem now.

That explains why I never heard back. I'm sorry they've gone.

Oh Odd! I'm so sorry you were hoping for their help.

How are things now?

Oh it's ok plays I'd wondered why I heard nothing but it makes sense. Such a shame. I hope it hasn't had too bad an effect on too many people.

I was so sad to hear this news. Such a great charity. I hope things are OK with you OddSocks. There is another charity called Nia that may be of some use.

That's so sad. Those are much needed services.

Petition for this to be raised at PMQs- would be nice to have the issue discussed

"The charity’s income fell from £6m in the year to the end of March 2012 to £1.4m just two years later" according to this article

But look at the comment on it: It's the most vile domestic violence "charity" in existence. Any other organisation would be better at helping victims than these anti-male extremists.

I hope that's satire.

I mentioned this to a friend who works in DV and said she had similar concerns about Eaves as have been raised about kids company. She wasn't willing to say more but I think there may have been some financial mismanagement (I am not alleging fraud FTR)

bump- please sign the petition!

WishIWasWonderwoman Wed 04-Nov-15 19:44:32

Lynda wow, really? That's a real shame. I hope the truth comes out, and if that's not the case than I hope there is some more fuss.
