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.
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.
Al-Anon Family Groups provide support to anyone whose life is, or has been, affected by someone else’s drinking. We believe alcoholism affects the whole family, not just the drinker. We are an international organisation with over 800 support groups in the UK and Republic of Ireland. Al-Anon is a fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who share their experience in order to solve their common problems.
