Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council has received a gold award for its commitment to supporting people affected by domestic violence.
It was presented at the recent Onus Workplace Charter Awards in recognition of its workplace policy which ensures that Council will effectively respond to all disclosures of abuse and provide support for victims.
The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Councillor Brenda Chivers said: “This is the third successive year that Council has been recognised for its approach to cases of domestic violence. Our thanks go to the Policing and Safety Community Partnership members who are leading the way in tackling domestic abuse and removing the stigma. Everyone deserves to live in a safe place without the threat of violence and I hope we inspire and influences other organisations.”
The Chair of Causeway Coast and Glens PCSP Councillor Margaret Anne McKillop said: “It is very encouraging to receive this award again as it highlights our ongoing commitment to support to those affected by domestic violence. By working in partnership with Onus, we want to create a zero tolerance approach.
