You can help protect women and children escaping abuse by contributing to our open door appeal. We accept referrals 24 hours a day and families can be brought to a place of safety within hours of calling us. This winter we are raising funds to expand our services so that more women and children can escape domestic abuse and access safety.
Our team of specialist domestic abuse workers will provide emotional and practical support to the whole family. Our children’s support worker will ensure children have activities, pyjamas and toys to help them through the first few days and weeks of arriving and we will make sure that the room they share with mum is safe and comfortable with all the essential items and more. Our support provides space for recovery and healing following abuse and continues for many months and sometimes even years until the family have resettled in their forever home.
We also provide courses in the community that can be accessed at any time by any women aged 16+. During these support programmes women are given the knowledge and resources to help them reflect and understand their experiences and work towards recovery following being subjected domestic abuse.
Follow us on social media to watch a new door open every day throughout the advent period this winter.
