The People’s National Party Youth Organisation has announced that it is leading the coordination of a project to provide legal services to assist victims of abuse to access free legal support that will allow them to safely separate themselves and their children from their abusers.

According to PNPYO President Krystal Tomlinson, the recent incidents of murder of women have brought back into public consciousness the lack of security that women have in their relationships and in their own homes.

Through partnership with the law office of Attorney at law Kymberli Whittaker, who is also a former Legal Advisor to the PNPYO, Tomlinson says women will be able to set an appointment for legal consultation to guide them through the process of leaving abusive homes.

Tomlinson added that the frequency of these violent acts could convince those now in abusive relationships, that they are better off staying with their abusers.
