Obituary of Denise Marshall, founder of schemes to help trafficked women and victims of DV

The Guardian has published an obituary of Denise Marshall, the former chief executive of Eaves, who has sadly passed away at the age of 53 on 21st August.

As Chief Executive of Eaves, which helps women facing violence, she set up the Amina Scheme which provided a support and befriending scheme for women who have been raped, sexually assaulted or abused at any time in their lives.

Ms Marshall also founded the Poppy Project, which houses and supports the women trafficked into the UK, and a number of other initiarives that brought about real change for those who had experienced sexual assault and exploitation.

Ms Marshall was awarded an OBE for services to disadvantaged women, but later handed it back in protest at government cuts to services for rape and domestic violence victims.
