Service offered: Our Community DV Practitioners will provide regular practical and emotional support on housing, benefits and budgeting, safety planning, health and social care, and community engagement. In addition we can accompany you to solicitor’s appointments and support you in attending the Family Courts. We can liaise with agencies on your behalf to ensure that you receive specialist support in areas such as drug and alcohol dependency, mental health, and children’s education and wellbeing. Our Prevention and Recovery Service works with women and men who are mainly seeking help to understand if their relationship is abusive and to support them to recover from recent or past abuse. Support is tailored to meet each person’s unique needs. Our Prevention and Recovery Service (PARS) offers a non-crisis response structured programme of emotional support if you are affected domestic violence and abuse but are at low risk of harm. We can help people to make sense of their experience, recover and move on positively.
Target group: People who have experienced or who are experiencing domestic violence and abuse.
