Achill Local Area Network on Violence Against Women to be launched next week

On Monday next, December 3 at 7pm, Achill Local Area Network on Violence Against Women will be officially launched in Achill Library. This community based network is made up of a range of support services for women experiencing violence, along with community representatives and individuals in the Achill area; all who want to raise awareness of and create a community response to the issue of violence against women.

Co-ordinator of Corr Acla CDP, Genevieve Grealis, commented: “We are delighted to facilitate the launch of this network. Violence against women is a hidden issue that affects approximately one in five women across all sectors of all communities, so it is vital that we develop a community led response to tackle the problem.”
