Their Community Domestic Violence team is here to help if you are at high risk of harm from your violent and abusive relationship, by providing practical support on things such as safety planning, housing, benefits and budgeting, health and social care and community engagement. They do this through face to face sessions in the community in a safe location. The aim of the team is to reduce your risk of harm from domestic violence and abuse and improve your overall safety and well being through a service user-focused approach. They can accompany you to solicitor’s appointments and attend the Family Courts with you; liaise with agencies on your behalf to ensure that you receive specialist support in other areas; and make referrals to refuges across the country and temporary emergency accommodation, where available.
