What does this service offer?
Domestic Abuse Support
Our domestic abuse service offers support to individuals at risk of or living in a domestic abuse situation. This service will provide practical help and advice, and essential support for those who are at risk. In the casework support, which is 1:1 work, areas such as healthy relationships and boundaries, power and control, and general wellbeing will be covered.
Practical Housing Advice
For those who are at risk of homelessness, or who are currently homeless due to domestic abuse, there is an option for practical housing advice which would include 1:1 sessions with a domestic abuse caseworker where you will be offered advice and guidance around benefits, housing options, safety and budgeting to ensure long term security.
Friday Advice Sessions
We have advice sessions available every Friday morning between 11am and 2pm. These sessions are delivered by LGBT Foundation and Independent Choices and individuals can find out more about the services we offer and access advice and support from a Domestic Abuse Caseworker or LGBT IDVA (Independent Domestic Abuse Advisor). To book an appointment please call our reception team on 0345 3 30 30 30.
