Information centre

The outreach/information centre is open every day between 9a.m. and 2p.m.  It also offers an appointment system between 2p.m. and 4p.m. In addition to this, we provide a 24hr on call emergency service 365 days a year.

Any individual in the community can access the information centre for free information and support regarding domestic abuse. This service is for individuals in the community who do not want refuge, or structured support, but still require practical and emotional support, on issues which could arise from living in an abusive relationship. We are also able to sign post individuals to appropriate agencies such as solicitors, police, social services, housing, debt management etc.

Refuge

Refuge is temporary emergency accommodation for women and children. We can accommodate six families who are fleeing Domestic Abuse.  We are able to offer support and information, on various issues e.g. housing / tenancy, legal issues, debt management etc. By offering this support, women are aware of their options to make informed choices.

Children and Young People Work

Family workers provide support to children both in the refuge and in the community. We work with children between the ages of 0-18 yrs. We provide help and support, on a one to one and group basis, depending on the individual needs of the child.  We also work in partnership with other organisations i.e.: social services, playgroups, schools, health visitors, sure-start, children’s partnership, etc.

Floating Support

Floating support is a community based service, providing structured support to 15 families in the community. This is a flexible service that offers support to develop skills to assist in the prevention of abuse and homelessness. The support we provide depends on the needs of each individual.
