Footprints Womens Centre in Poleglas, West Belfast has provided services for women since 1991. One of their key roles is the support of women impacted by domestic violence. PPR are working with women in Footprints on a campaign to improve police response to cases of domestic violence.
For the last 3 years Footprints Women’s Centre and human rights organisation Participation and the Practice of Rights have been working with women from the Colin neighbourhood who came together to tackle their concerns around the way in which the PSNI currently approach Non-Molestation orders. The group has now formed as Footprints Women’s Movement and has gathered evidence on the impact of domestic violence in their community and, more specifically the effectiveness of Non- Molestation Orders as a response to domestic violence.
