Motion text

That this House congratulates Refuge on its 35th anniversary; notes its important position as the world's first ever refuge for women and children escaping domestic violence; recognises that it was opened at a time when nobody talked about domestic violence; pays tribute to its excellent work as a provider of emergency accommodation and emotional and practical support for women and children whatever their situation; and calls for continued commitment and resources to tackle domestic violence and achieve Refuge's vision of a society where domestic violence is not tolerated or ignored and where women and children can live in safety.
