Manx Lottery Trust donates funds to tackle domestic abuse

Nearly £130,000 is being put forward to tackle domestic abuse on the Island.

The Manx Lottery Trust is awarding the funds to Victim Support.

The charity says between 50-60% of the work it does is related to domestic abuse - but with this donation it hopes to take major strides forward tackling the issue.

It's part of the Manx Lottery Trust's 2018-19 Thematic Funding, and is gifting a total of £128,400.

This grant is to be used over three years and will fund a project worker over that time.

The appointment of which will be made in the next few weeks.
