The speaker, Yvonne, began by giving some startling statistics regarding the abuse suffered by some women and describing how the Federation had been set up in 1974 as a response to the need for help and support for victims of this abuse. The Federation was now able to offer safe and supported accommodation at secret locations, where abused women and their children could stay until permanent accommodation was found. She said that Waveney Women's Aid could provide refuge for five women and eleven children for up to two years.
