Today we have the following Refuge vacancies:

 

  • Do you want to talk to someone in confidence about the abuse that you are experiencing?
  • Are you unsure if you are experiencing domestic abuse?
  • Are you worried about a friend or relative and don’t know how to help them?

The helpline is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and is staffed by trained workers who can offer you support, safety planning, information and advice. The staff are skilled in active listening, will not make judgements and will treat you with respect, as well as offering practical and emotional support and information.

The support workers will talk with you about domestic abuse and your individual situation, and discuss what options are available to you, including:
• On-going listening support
• Refuge space or other safe accommodation
• One-to-one support and safety planning
• Recovery group programmes
• Referral and signposting to other appropriate agencies

MumTeenagerCalls to the helpline are free and will always be treated confidentially, except where there is risk of significant harm to children or vulnerable adults, in which case the helpline worker may need to contact another agency to make sure the vulnerable person or child is protected and to get you any additional help you need.

Practitioners and professionals wanting to make referrals or looking for specialist advice and information on domestic abuse issues are also welcome to ring the helpline or email their query, which will be dealt with within 48hrs.
