There is lots of useful information about domestic abuse on this site along with links to other services and agencies. 

We believe in...
  • supporting our clients to become truly re-empowered and independent as survivors of domestic abuse
  • providing effective & innovative support based on a strong ethos which promotes equality and justice
  • treating women, children & young people with dignity and respect
  • listening to them without prejudice or judgement
  • working in partnership with other professionals to assist clients and to improve their safety
