Service offered: We'll listen to you, assess how safe you are, provide information and support on your legal and housing rights, support you if you go to court, help you to obtain legal protection and work with you and other professionals to help make you safer. Making you safer might involve helping you separate from the person who is hurting you, bringing in additional services to assist you with different needs that you have or by trying to reduce the risks you face if remaining with the person who is hurting you. If it is safe to do so - and following discussions with you - we can engage directly with the person who is hurting you to try and reduce the harm they are causing you. We will work with you and won't force you to do anything you're not ready to do.
Target group: We work with anyone experiencing domestic abuse: Living in Hackney / Aged 16 or over / Male or Female / Of any sex and/or gender / Of any sexual orientation
Area served: London Borough of Hackney.
How to contact: If you're experiencing domestic abuse you can contact us directly or ask someone such as your health visitor, doctor, housing worker or social worker to refer you. We usually see people in central Hackney but we'll check whether you find it difficult to come to the office and, if so, we can arrange to see you somewhere safe, accessible and comfortable for you such as a housing office, GP surgery or at your home. We can also visit you with a professional you already know such as your social worker or health visitor.
