Help for women and men living in Derby

Our Independent Domestic Abuse Advisors can provide specialist one-to-one short-term support for those that have been referred to MARAC because of a high risk of serious harm or homicide from domestic abuse.

In Derbyshire, our team can carry out risk assessments and develop both short and long-term safety plans to support you and your children.

We can also support you through the court process and where we can’t help, we can signpost you to other specialist services for extra support.

We can explain the system and help you access housing, health, education, financial and family services to help them build a life free from abuse.
