Redthread and the Solace Women's Aid will place advocates into four London hospital emergency departments to provide independent domestic violence advice. The advisers will focus on working with vulnerable young people aged 25 and under, with the aim of ensuring they can access appropriate support.
There will be three domestic violence advocates working with across all four hospitals. The service will be split, but all four – the Royal London, St Mary’s, St George’s and King's College – are on board and excited to look at how they will be able to support the young victims of domestic abuse and sexual violence in addition to the current services.
