What we can help with…

Our specialist domestic abuse workers offer emotional and practical support to victims and survivors of domestic abuse. They offer one-to-one, telephone and group support.

The Independent Domestic and Sexual Violence Advocates (IDSVA) represent high risk victims and survivors of domestic abuse at Knowsley MARAC (Multi Agency Risk Assessment Conference). They offer emotional and practical support, and safety planning to male and female victims.

We run a purpose built refuge for women and their children who are fleeing domestic violence and abuse.

All services offer emotional support plus support around the criminal and civil courts and through child protection processes.
