On Friday 21st November, we celebratedour third birthday with an event at Devon County Hall in Exeter. The event was attended by 60 guests including John Hart, leader of Devon County Council, the Director of Public Health, Virginia Pearson, and representatives from the Police and Crime Commissioners office.
Guests heard from speakers including Sarah Wollaston MP who is a patron and Sarah Green from the national organisation, End Violence Against Women Coalition as well as hearing from women who have used the service. A specially recorded video message was sent by Lynne Featherstone MP, the Minister for Crime Prevention. We launched our Annual Report on the day too and guests were able to see the first showing of a video where women who use the service shared their views.
