Community Support

We offer domestic abuse support services within your local community to provide practical and emotional help to women who are not staying in a refuge

Community Support is a specific outreach service for women who wish to remain in their own home, it is provided to women who do not wish to or need to use refuges, as well as to women in temporary accommodation such as B&Bs or hostels where no support or help on domestic abuse is available.
