ITM - Irish Traveller Movement

Tearmann Domestic Abuse Services

- is a community based Information and Support service set up in response to the escalation of domestic violence in the area.  Tearmann is an Irish word meaning Sanctuary.  Tearmann believe that domestic abuse is a serious crime against women.  Its presence has been continually disbelieved and ignored in our society.  They provide information and support to women, but never impose their own solutions on them.  They believe the crime of domestic abuse crosses all social boundaries and that any woman can be a victim.  Therefore, the organisation is non-sectarian and non-racist regardless of class, creed, sexual orientation or physical ability.  You do not need to do this alone.
