Devon Domestic Abuse Support Service (DDASS) is delighted that Exeter Council has chosen to support our Young People Safeguarding Team in their work around creating ‘Safe and Sound’ - a toolkit for primary age children who experience the impact of domestic abuse.
Our grateful thanks to Amesbury Town Council for their support of our Buddy project.
At the recent grant allocation meeting, Splitz was awarded £300 to continue its nationally accredited mentoring & befriending work, supporting women and children from the Amesbury area who have experienced the trauma of domestic abuse. The Buddy project provides the essential longer term emotional support which prevents isolation, loneliness, and helps rebuild the self confidence and self esteem of those who have suffered so much.
Our grateful thanks to Melksham Town Council for their continued support of our Buddy project.

A heart-warming response and note of thanks from a funder is always nice to receive. Our young people's team were particularly blessed in receiving the following message from the Grant Officer at Comic Relief..................
The number of offences against women, including domestic abuse, rape and sexual assaults, rose by almost 10% to 117,568 in 2015-6.
The number of prosecutions relating to violence against women and girls in England and Wales reached a record level last year, the director of public prosecutions said, as she warned of the increasing use of social media to threaten and control.
It is with great sadness that Splitz said goodbye to Andy Samuels this month.
Splitz have once again been successful in maintaining our Mentoring & Befriending Approved Provider Status (APS) from the NCVO for the Buddy Scheme.
Those who access our services, and those who fund them, can be reassured that the best practice and quality is maintained in all that we do!
The whole Splitz team is saddened to bid goodbye to one of its stalwart supporters from the early days of our life as a support charity.
Local coverage continues of the excellent work of the Exeter based team of domestic abuse specialists who have been commissioned by Devon Council to tackle the challenges facing victims and their families
Don't take our word for it, but the quality of the domestic abuse training by our front line practitioners continues to be reflected in the evaluation feedback from satisfied clients.
