Fears for victims of violence

Women's Aid in the town have been told they will no longer receive nearly £18,000 which they usually get from the Borough Council to help fund their charity.

The help group have told Heart News they'll need to make changes to their service to cope with the drop in contribution. They had a contract with Wrexham Borough Council which expires at the end of this month and have been told it won't be renewed.

Service user 'Kim' has been in three violent relationships and says the charity has helped her put her life back on track, describing the staff there as 'Angels.'

The group did receive £75,000 this year from the Welsh Assembly, they say that money went towards creating a One-Stop advice centre for women in the town. Aside from this they also run a women's refuge for victims.

They've revealed to Heart they'll now be looking to fill the gap in funding from other sources.
