How we can help

We offer support to anyone aged 16+ who has been affected by domestic abuse and violence.

Domestic abuse can affect everyone differently. It is any physical, psychological, emotional or economic abuse by someone close to you. It includes stalking and harassment, forced marriage, so-called ‘honour crimes’ and female genital mutilation.

If you would like guidance or support around domestic abuse, we’re here to help.

We take referrals from professionals, or you can get in touch yourself. If your needs aren’t right for our service, we can help you find the support you need.
