What we do

VOICES works together with people who have been affected by domestic abuse, whether in the past or more recently, to prevent harm and promote recovery. We aim to help families to recover and thrive. We do this through individual support and advocacy, and a suite of group recovery programmes.

We also create opportunities for people with lived experience to help design effective services and policy.

We provide consultation and training for professionals and services, and work to raise awareness of the realities of domestic abuse in our local community.
