Community based services

We provide women with confidential practical and emotional outreach support in their own home or in a safe place in the community.


Floating Support

Our Floating Support service works with women  who are considering their options whether they are still in an abusive relationship or have recently left one. Our support workers can assist with safety, health, housing and other concerns. This service is also open to male victims of domestic abuse.

Phone: 020 8317 8273


Sanctuary Scheme

The Sanctuary Scheme helps women to remain in their own homes by installing additional security. The scheme can change locks, provide window alarms, fireproof letterboxes, and personal alarms etc. Specific security measures are assessed on a case by case basis.

The Freedom Programme

We run the Freedom programme, a group workshop which focuses on domestic abuse awareness and self self-esteem. The programme helps women to deconstruct the behavioural patterns of their abusers and recognise the early signs of abusive behaviour so that the cycle of abuse can be broken once and for all.

To register for the course please contact us.
