The work is done with you one to one, on the phone or in person and you will work with the same person throughout your time with us wherever possible. This person is your Independent Domestic Violence Adviser (IDVA), and she is trained to support and help you, not to judge or tell you what to do, but to help you make your own decisions.
At our Minerva Centre each woman has their own keyworker who will help them work through a variety of issues and find solutions.
Our free and confidential helpline provides immediate support and advice to women affected by domestic and sexual abuse living in London. We will listen without judgement; we are here to support you.
We can refer you on to our other services such as refuge accommodation, longer term advocacy support, counselling or specialist children’s services. The helpline also offers specialist short term support (up to a month).
If you are experiencing domestic violence, we can listen, help you understand your options, explain your legal rights, talk to the police for you, help you get to safer housing or even attend court with you.
