New domestic abuse service launched in Doncaster

A new helpline and website have been launched for victims of domestic abuse in Doncaster.

The service has been created to provide victims with a single phone number and website to access all local services.

The new service provides links and information to the NHS, police and various charities.

Andrea Milner from Doncaster Council said the service was "ideal" for anyone wanting detailed information especially with "government spending cuts."

Doncaster Domestic Abuse Service said more than one in four women and one in six men are affected by domestic abuse.
