Domestic abuse affects not only the victim, but the whole family. By tackling domestic abuse and its root problems early enough, we can help put a stop to it before problems escalate.

Domestic abuse

Domestic abuse is controlling, coercive or threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between those aged 16 and over who are, or have been, intimate partners or family members (mother, father, son, daughter, brother, sister or grandparents, directly related, in-laws or stepfamily), regardless of gender or sexuality.

What we do

We provide one-to-one support to those in abusive relationships, helping them recognise the signs of abuse and build healthier relationships.

Our project workers are experts in therapeutic techniques and practice a ‘whole family’ approach, working with parents, sufferers and perpetrators of abuse. Young people can access counselling, activities and crafts alongside therapy and drop-in sessions. Our services are designed to improve self-confidence, reduce problems relating to anger management, counter the effects of bullying and help relationships within the family and with friends.
