How we help

We support you and your children to:

  • Find a way out of your abusive relationship
  • Access safe accommodation and expert support
  • Rebuild your life, with dedicated individual support as well as help from family and others in your situation
  • Provide support if you choose to stay where you live now
  • Get access to specialist support if you’re at high-risk or going through a criminal or civil court case (if you live in Derbyshire)
Whatever your story, we’ll find support that’s right for you.

Lisa's story

“Thanks to all, it takes time to realise what circle of life you’re in, but we can always work in small tiny steps. I know I can succeed, just need the support network in place, so I don’t fall down.”

Whatever your story, we’ll find support that’s right for you.

We value the safety of those we support, so we’ve changed their name
