Over 20,000 women a week in the UK experience at least one incident of domestic abuse on average 2 women a week are murdered at the hands of their current or former partner.

  • Believe victims and make their safety our priority
  • Support and empower victims to take control of their own lives
  • Recognise and care for the needs of children affected by violence

We recognise that violence is a violation of an individual’s human rights, that it is the result of an abuse of power and control, and that it is rooted in the historic status of women in the family and in society.

We all have the right to live our lives free from all forms of violence and abuse, and that society has a duty to recognise and defend this right.

It is our priority to develop and deliver high quality services to individuals, families and communities that contribute to ending violence, abuse and exploitation.
