A centre in Bury St Edmunds that helps woman and children rebuild their lives after domestic abuse hopes having a better online presence will enable it to reach more people in need.
The Women’s Aid Centre won a competition by Bury-based design firm Kall Kwik to have a new website built, for free.
On Monday BBC Radio Suffolk presenter Etholle George, who is patron of the women’s refuge, was given the honour of pressing a button to launch the site into action.
Centre manager Annie Munson said the new website looked better, contained more information and was designed such that its users could ‘escape from it quickly’ if needed.
She said: “Hopefully anybody who comes to the site now will be impressed by it and that impression will lead to them trusting us with their future.”
