Families affected by domestic violence can benefit from a grant of up to £2,000 thanks to an initiative recently awarded a second round of funding.
The Anchor Project aims to support children of affected families by helping them to recover from the trauma and upheaval.
It is a joint partnership between charity City Bridge Trust and grant-giving organisation Buttle UK which is available to families across London.
To date, though, nobody from Newham has applied for funding.
Chairman of City Bridge Trust, Jeremy Mayhew, said: ““Every year, domestic violence affects a large number of families.
You may also want to watch:
“Children and young people are especially vulnerable, yet their needs are often overlooked.”
The grant, which can be applied for through a support agency such as refuges or social services, can include individually-tailored items such as bedroom furniture as well as counselling, educational toys or after-school activity clubs.
