On Thursday 2nd November, the Women in Housing Awards took place at the Hilton in Manchester’s Deansgate section.
Our domestic violence refuge had been nominated for the ‘Most Effective Project in Improving the Lives of Women.’ The Women in Housing Ceremony was a prestigious affair, hosted by radio presenter Liz Green and comedian Shappi Khorsandi.
Violence Against Women and Girls(VAWG) Strategy Manager Radlamah Canakiah attended the awards ceremony with Domestic Violence Project Assistant Laura Rodriguez-Poza.
Although the award was given to development company Places for People on this occasion, the work of the dv refuge did amazingly well to be shortlisted among such strong projects in the housing sector.
Congratulations to everyone involved in the work of the dv refuge and One-Stop-Shop, including our partners Solace Women’s Aid.
