Solace in Islington (SASS)


Our IDVAs offer information, advocacy and specialist services to increase safety and meet a range of needs – these can include ongoing safety concerns, emotional or housing support, legal options, reporting to the police, help around child contact, benefits and financial advice. IDVAs usually hold cases for 3 months but can work with clients for up to 6 months. IDVAs do not offer any therapeutic or emotional support. The service does not accept referrals for clients who have experienced historical abuse. Islington residents only.


Islington residents only. We work with 13 – 17 year olds in abusive relationships (including intimate partner relationships, CSE and gang exploitation). This is not a service for young people who have witnessed domestic violance in the home, but rather a targeted service for young people in abusive relationships themselves.


IRIS Services works in partnership with GP Surgeries and offer tailored training on the public health issue of Domestic Violence & Abuse (DVA). This service enables support to be offered to DVA victims at an early stage before the abuse becomes a serious risk to mental, emotional and physical health.
