What We Do

We provide the only domestic abuse service that specialises in supporting Deaf people. We currently work in London and the South East and offer remote support across England.

Everybody we work with has their own dedicated worker. This worker will create a safety and support plan by assessing your support needs and by discussing the things you want to happen. Having this plan allows you to understand what is in place to keep you safe. 

We can offer support and advice linked to housing, children, therapy and the legal system. Your dedicated worker can also work with you when dealing with other agencies such as the police. 

We also provide prevention workshops in schools, colleges, and within the Deaf community. Our staff are working to raise awareness amongst young Deaf people using BSL, as we believe this information should be shared in their first language.

Coronavirus Response

During this unprecedented period, our Domestic Abuse Service is continuing to provide support remotely, through WhatsApp/Facetime, email or by text.

We are also expanding our support beyond London and the South East to accept referrals for Deaf people throughout England.
