More About The Organisation

Organisation Details

About Us

We provide safe temporary accommodation for those aged 16+, who are single and with children facing domestic abuse. We have 4 safe houses in Bristol, one of which is dedicated to black or ethnic minorities. We also offer a dedicated child service for children aged 0-16 years. We have a crisis service which help women stay at home by securing windows and doors and getting injunctions. They will also help find someone safe housing. We have a resettlement service which works with women and children who have moved or are still in violent situations.
