Dedicated and Hard Working

Our staff have deep knowledge and understanding of the issues around all forms of violence against women and they are all personally committed to working with every survivor to meet her needs, support her on her journey to recovery and help her to be safe.

We call members of our front line teams Independent Personal Advocates (IPA) which means your IPA will work with you and for you to achieve the changes you want and to make sure you have everything in place to keep you safe.

Our IPA's deliver a 24/7 service so you can always reach out for help, advice and support - and that goes for your children as well.

Your Independent Personal Advocate

We know it takes courage to open up to someone about very personal experiences.  We also know that telling your story more than once is unnecessary and just adds to your trauma.  So we do everything we can to make sure your dedicated Independent Personal Advocate stays with you across your whole journey.

Going through very stressful, frightening or distressing events can cause emotional or psychological trauma.

We know that even seeking help can be not only difficult but also add to the trauma....
