We are here for you
Outreach / community based support
Regardless of your situation, we are here to help you. You may still be in a relationship and have concerns about it, you may have reached the point where you want to leave but you do not know what your options are. Perhaps you left the relationship a while ago but continue to be affected by it. We can meet with you wherever is convenient. We will need to take some personal information from you and will need your consent to do that. We will then carry out an assessment of both your need and risk and together we can work out what is the best support for you. We will never tell you what to do, we can explore the choices open to you and give you the information you need to make the best choice for you. If you would like support to attend meetings, get legal advice or attend court we will do all that we can to meet those needs to. To find out more ring us on 01983 825981. If we are unable to answer, please leave a message and we will get back to you.
