The contract for Cleveland Domestic and Sexual Violence services has been given to a male perpetrator project instead of the local well developed women's aid refuge and sexual violence service. Women's refuge services have been losing out to non-feminist housing associations throughout the country but this is the most outrageous example I have heard of. Please sign the petition below. It doesnt matter if you dont live in the local area.
