A report of domestic violence that has left one woman with non fatal injuries and her attacker dead, has caught the attention of officials at the Women’s Support Shelter.

Shelter manager Sylvie Edward has strongly urged victims of domestic violence to get out of abusive relations and seek the requisite support services available for both victim and perpetrators.

She stressed that people should be aware of the signs of abuse which often escalates into physical violence and sometimes fatalities.

But what of the embarrassment that often prevents victims from coming forward to access the assistance and intervention they need? Edward assures that the help services are strictly confidential.

Edward observes that the centre’s mandate is also to focus on the perpetrators of domestic violence in order to register success in the fight against domestic violence.
