About Us

Splitz is an independent charity and leading provider of domestic abuse support services in southwest England. We have a key role in shaping strategy and policy through our participation in local strategy groups, domestic abuse forums and by lobbying local, regional and national government.

As a service user-led provider we work with partner agencies and the local community to research and forecast support needs, and develop and deliver a range of quality services and other solutions. Our services are developed with input from service users and others in the local community.

We work with national training providers to ensure our staff meet the appropriate national occupational standards. Through a programme of continuous professional development staff are encouraged to achieve an appropriate recognised qualification at level 3 or above

History

The charity was founded in 1989 as a project providing services in West Wiltshire and around the Chippenham and Devizes areas. In 1993 the project was registered as a charity called the Single Parent Family Association (charity no: 1017424). In 1997 the charity was registered as a limited liability company and as such was required to re-register with the Charity Commission (charity no: 1064764). This is when the name was changed to Splitz Parenting Alone Support Service. In 2005 the name was shortened to Splitz Support Service to recognise that we were supporting people with a much wider range of issues.

Development

Our aim is to continue providing support services in the community where there is a need and a demand. Many of our services are developed to reduce the gaps in provision, and this is most evident in the services provided to young people affected by domestic abuse. There are very few specialist services for young people between 11 and 16 years of age.

Registration

Splitz is a registered charity, number 1064764 and a company limited by guarantee, registered in England, number 3360057.
