Stay aware, know the signs, and get in touch if you think you might be in an abusive relationship. We can help.

How we help

There’s no typical relationship which means there isn’t just one way we can help, however, here are a few of the ways we can support you if think you may be in an abusive or violent relationship:

  • Advice and guidance
  • Immediate safety planning
  • Safe accommodation for you and your children

What happens when you call?

First and foremost, we’re here to listen to what you’re going through and what you need to keep safe. Then, we’ll recommend support specific to your situation – whether that’s connecting you and your children with our safe accommodation options or guiding you on how to increase your safety at home. We can provide as much or as little help and assistance as you feel is right for you. Don’t let what you think we might say stop you from calling us. You can live a life free from relationship abuse. Our team is here to help you do that. 

Our promises to you

  • We’re always by your side

    If you feel trapped and isolated by abusive behaviour, know that you don’t have to go through this alone. We’ll be here to support and walk alongside you when you need someone to be there. That’s a promise.
  • We’re open to everyone

    Anyone can be affected by relationship abuse. That’s why we work with people from all walks of life, all genders and all ages. If we don’t have a programme that’s right for you, we’ll point you in the right direction to ensure you’re taken care of.
  • We’ll respect your choices

    Everyone is different and so is their story. We’ll listen to what you want, and we won’t judge or force you into something that you don’t feel is right for you. No matter what you choose, we’ll make our support work for you.
  • We’ll value your safety
