Services they offer

They provide a range of domestic abuse support services to women and children. These include safe houses, children’s services, dedicated Black and Ethnic Minority Services, resettlement and outreach services, and a crisis response service.


Referrals are all made by telephone to their duty team at their public office. At the telephone stage women are asked about their situation, the number of children they have with them, what areas of the city are unsafe for them and whether they want a safe house, the resettlement service, outreach support, crisis response service or the South Asian crisis service. They carry out a DASH risk assessment on all referrals and if appropriate refer to the Domestic Violence MARAC


They also offer families face to face and telephone advice.
