Clare Haven is hopeful a new state agency launching today will spearhead a zero tolerance approach to domestic violence throughout the country.

Cuan, the statutory body for domestic, sexual and gender based violence will be led by the HSE’s former Director of National Planning, Dr Stephanie O’Keefe.

One of Cuan’s primary goals will be to deliver 280 new accessible refuge accommodation units by 2026.



Clare Haven Director of Services Dr.Siobhán O’Connor says that while this is a major step, the organisation must tackle the root of the problem.
