The Andalusian Institute for Women (IAM) has attended to a total of 232 people in Malaga, including women victims of gender violence and dependants in their care.
This is the figure up until the end of September, and compares to the 255 helped – often through finding space in shelters – during 2018.
These reception resources, managed by the Andalusian company Gestión de Servicios Especializados (Agis), include emergency centres, refuge houses and supervised flats that provide urgent and immediate attention and reception 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
By the end of September this comprehensive care network, which in Malaga has 90 beds, 12 flats and 40 rooms, helped 125 women victims of male violence, four less than in the same period of 2018. In addition, 107 children were taken in, compared to 126 last year.
Across Andalusia the budget for this service has been increased by €1.3 million to €7.5 million in 2020, as the Euro Weekly News earlier reported.
