I would like all women to have the financial dignity they deserve on their journey of healing from the physical, psychological and financial abuse that criminal perpetrators have exerted on their victims. I am very concerned at the weak support women get in the UK with the present DWP provision. I wish to launch a nationwide appeal for a STRONG AND STABLE PATHWAY OF DWP SUPPORT FOR WOMEN DV SURVIVORS TO HEAL AND REBUILD THEIR LIVES... This is so urgent!!!! For the long term support there is a need to review the DWP policies to protect women from sudden drops in support. Letters received and no money to help her could result in her death from suicide in her depression. Or if the perpetrator is still free in society she could return to him and the next beating be her murder. 
We must keep pressuring the weak&wobbly coalition of chaos gov in place now... and the hang over of the "something for nothing" mentality of the Cameron government that appears to demonize those in need of Social Welfare. However, presently there is a failure of State Duty of Care towards women as per UN directives on violence towards women in war and peace time. There is growing evidence in case histories..  Women should not be faced with bailiffs, eviction from safe housing or insufficient money to keep her phone link to call for help or be in need of foodbanks with insufficient funds for food.  When her confidence is built to return to work she must have an overlap of support to be sure she can cope!

Once supported to healing she will be one strong woman for any organisation to have in their team.
