Who we are

VOICES is a charity founded by women with lived experience, dedicated to providing recovery support and advocacy for people affected by domestic abuse.

VOICES is also a platform which enables the voices of people with lived experience of domestic abuse to inform and improve service provision, in response to their needs.

VOICES was founded in 2014 by a group of women who had experienced Domestic Abuse. They wanted to improve services and help others to recover and thrive.

Since then, VOICES has developed a growing range of connected services and support whilst remaining true to our founding principles and values. Maintaining a Safe Space for survivors has always been a priority for VOICES, and in 2021, the charity’s vision of a Safe Space Centre where survivors of domestic and sexual abuse can receive specialist, multi-faceted support became a reality. 

VOICES staff, volunteers and lived experience consultants have received awards and accolades over the years. This recognition has allowed the organisation to provide a valuable feedback loop, impacting policy and processes with a focus on making a positive change for those accessing our services.
