Help For Abuse Victims On Holiday

Caravan parks across South and West Devon are displaying advice posters for people who suffer abuse whilst on holiday.

The posters and leaflet give support network numbers...including places of refuge.

Caravan park owners have been contacted by the South and West Devon Domestic Violence and Abuse Service which is working in partnership with the police, Devon and Dartmoor Community Safety Partnership and Teignbridge and South Hams Councils

They decided on the campaign after seeing a rise in the number of abuse incidents amongst holiday-makers.
Sara Williams from the service has been talking to our reporter Wendy Buckingham about the issues.  

Residents and visitors can seek support from domestic violence and abuse services by ringing the Helpline for South and West Devon on 01626 365087.
