  • Are you worried or concerned about your safety?
  • Do you experience physical or verbal abuse?
  • Do you feel intimidated or controlled by others in your life?

Domestic abuse is any incident of controlling, coercive, threatening, degrading and violent behaviour, including sexual violence between those aged 16 or over who are or have been intimate partners or family members.

The drop in is open five days a week for anyone seeking advice to speak with a specialist worker who can offer support. You do not need to have a child to access this service.

The drop-in sessions will be a safe, confidential, non-judgemental place for anyone to come in and seek advice in relation to their safety, wellbeing and practical needs.

Whether you want to get advice, just talk about your concerns or access immediate support, you can meet with one of our specialist workers who can help you get the support and advice that you need. The specialist worker can also help you access other services that you might need. 

Some of the areas of support that you will be able to explore include:

  • Safety planning
  • Legal matters
  • Housing advice
  • Reporting to the police
  • Advice around benefits and finances
  • Therapeutic interventions for adults and children
  • Specialist support (e.g. drug and alcohol, sexual health)

There’s no need to book an appointment, just drop into one of our scheduled sessions.
