- Our workers are specialists in dealing with the subject of domestic abuse and work in a multi-agency arena. They aim to improve the safety and wellbeing of service users and any children who live in the home and a support plan will be specifically tailored to an individual’s needs. The workers will help with safety planning and reducing risk; offer advice and guidance regarding criminal and civil court processes; support with issues around housing (signposting and providing supporting letters where needed); referring on to other agencies (e.g. safeguarding agencies); and offer emotional support.
