Working To End Domestic Violence
‘Domestic Violence is referred to as the physical, sexual, emotional or psychological abuse perpetrated against a person by someone with whom he/she shares or has shared an intimate relationship.
According to data provided by the Crime And Problem Analysis (CAPA) Branch of the Trinidad & Tobago Police Service (TTPS), there were approximately 11,441 reports relating to domestic violence incidents between 2010 and 2015. Approximately 75% of these reports were related to female individuals. During the same period there were 131 domestic violence related deaths of which 56% were female.
It is important that the work to end ‘Domestic Violence’ must always be pursued.
The work to eliminate domestic violence requires the strength of a strong leadership team and the vision of a founder.
Our values are a representation of what we believe in, what we stand for, and how we serve those who are in need of our support.
