A DOMESTIC abuse awareness meeting is being planned for later this month.

Barrow police station is holding the event on November 26 from 1pm-4pm to help raise awareness for domestic abuse victims.

Cumbria’s Police and Crime Commissioner Peter McCall said: “I firmly believe that the more we can raise awareness of how to recognise the signs that someone may be affected by domestic abuse the better."

Cumbria police are hoping to help domestic abuse victims as well as assist workplaces recognising abuse and assist people where necessary.
