The Domestic Abuse and Safety Support Service (DASS), is a specialised service for women aged 16+ experiencing domestic abuse.
This service is available within the Southern Trust areas of Craigavon and Daisy Hill hospital.
The DASS service serves to provide immediate support and advice to women who are experiencing domestic abuse, within a hospital setting. Additionally, this service aims to link individuals and their families into longer term support within the community.
The DASS service also provides hospital staff with onsite specialised training, so that they have the confidence to ask about domestic abuse and be able to recognise the signs.
