Women's Aid faces premises crisis
A charity which supports women and children experiencing domestic violence in Lincolnshire says it could be forced to cut back services.

Workers at Lincoln Women's Aid have renewed a desperate appeal for new premises to continue their work.

They have until July to find a new base for their advice centre because their lease is running out.

Clare Morrison from the charity said a new funding problem was also leaving a gap in their budget.

She said: "We've been given some grants to take on new staff but at the same time applications we made to other trusts for things like our running costs have been unsuccessful.

"So it is important that we keep fundraising and hopefully, that people keep supporting us."
