VOICES supports people impacted by domestic abuse to recover & thrive. We work to have their voices heard by services and agencies, improving responses to their needs. We offer trauma informed community and professional training & consultation to service providers to inform and prevent secondary abuse.

£5 – towards travel costs for a participant to access our groups
£10 – funds a resource pack for a participant in our recovery programmes

£50 – pays towards our storage facility for clients moving to safe accommodation
£100 – pays for resource materials for a Freedom Programme course

Why the community needs us

We provide a safe, therapeutic and welcoming space in the community for people who have experienced domestic abuse to discuss their needs and find support to recover. We raise awareness in communities about how to support those impacted by abuse, including families, friends and colleagues.

Our impact on the community

We currently provide recovery and empowerment programmes for women and also offer individual and phone support to people with experience of domestic abuse. We have helped domestic abuse victims deal with housing, legal and financial challenges, referred and sought funding for counselling, respite breaks, skills and training, sporting activities, dance and reflexology. Women attending groups have said they feel stronger, less isolated and more positive about their future as a result.
