Leeway provides specialist support and advice to adults and children who have experienced, or who are still experiencing, domestic abuse. Leeway's helpline has skilled workers who can provide advice and support and make referrals to other Leeway services or external agencies. Leeway can offer a range of safe and secure refuge accommodation, as well as emergency temporary accommodation for women and children fleeing domestic abuse.

Our refuge staff offer advice, support and advocacy to both single women and women with children. Our Outreach Support service provides support to women who are still in an abusive relationship, and to those who have recently left an abusive relationship. The service provides emotional and practical support.

Our Outreach workers meet with the women on a regular basis. They meet the women in safe environments - this can be their home or a neutral place.

Our Advocacy service coordinates multi-agency responses to the safety and risk management of women experience or fleeing domestic abuse. The aim is to reduce the risk of harm and repeat victimisation of women and their children. Our Advocacy service supports victims of domestic abuse where their perpetrator is being prosecuted through the Criminal Justice System.

Leeway offers a range of services for children who have been/are victims of domestic abuse. We also support children who have witnessed domestic abuse within their homes and families. We have dedicated children's workers who visit communities, schools, and homes, and work within our refuges. Leeway can also provide a Male Victim support worker.

Each service is designed to help children and young people come to terms with their experiences. Leeway also works in local schools, delivering education programmes and provides agency and corporate training. Leeway believes in partnership working to prioritise the safety of women and children. We aim to empower our service users by providing them with the time and space they need to make safe decisions about their future.
