Chloe Williams’ partner physically and psychologically abused her for more than a year. The violence continued to escalate and reached a crisis point. “One day my partner injured me so badly during an attack that the police got involved and I was taken straight to hospital. When I came out the next day, my partner was on the run and the police told me I should leave my home immediately as I wasn’t safe. I explained to them that I had my dog at home and that I couldn’t leave as I didn’t have anyone to look after her.

We are delighted with the continuing support afforded by Melksham Town Council for women (and their dependent children) in the area who are re-building lives after experiencing the trauma of domestic abuse.
