Isidore: More needs to be done to combat abuse

The newly appointed Managing Director of the Saint Lucia Crisis Centre, Lancia Isidore, has told the Times that more needs to be done to combat all forms of abuse.

Isidore says although there have been some improvements, more needs to be done not only in regard to combating all forms of abuse, but ensuring male integration, addressing family concerns and encouraging youth mentoring.

According to the Crisis Centre official, the deficiencies can be addressed by educating and sensitising target groups and the public, advocacy at all levels, continued counseling services, innovative fundraising strategies and accessing donor agencies for project development  while forming strategic partnerships.

She told the Times that her priorities include finalising a five year strategic plan, capacity building, staff training and the development of a procedures manual.

Isidore also spoke of the need to address funding needs and embark on a membership drive.

The recently appointed Managing Director of the Saint Lucia Crisis Centre previously  served as Executive Director of the National Council of & for Persons with Disabilities for twelve years.
She become a recipient of the British Empire Medal in recognition of  her devoted service to the organisation.

    Crisis Centre will experience more internal and external crises with this new appointment. Y’all should have done a background check, or even simpler, contacted her former place of employment. I hope this is not a reflection of the type of due diligence the Crisis Centre does with the cases which come its way.

    Sad-But-True apparently the operator St Lucia Times (Such informative forum) do not know the amount of damage you are doing to their operation. Effective immediately, i will only read the news and no more comments. the comments section I enjoy reading but to read your comment first thing, is distasteful.

    And St. Lucia times, the articles and the contents are based on abuse. The comment i said was well placed in that abuse, can even happen in government. And this we have seen and are witnessing now.
    There was no reason to remove my comment based upon the wimps and fancies of anyone.
    By you so doing, you are allowing yourselves to be bullied by such an individual who is clearly a supporter of a government who keeps on attacking all forms of freedoms of speech on this island, one way or the other.

    St.Lucia Times, you must stop allowing operators of the uwp, b.ull.y you around.
    This is an a.ttack on your ability to afford us the people, the platform to voice our opinion.
