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 to receive calls, from any women and provide advice and support and make referrals to other Leeway services or external agencies. Leeway’s range of safe and secure refuge accommodation, offers emergency temporary accommodation for women and children fleeing domestic abuse. Refuge staff offer advice, support and advocacy to both single women and mothers bringing their children.

Outreach Support is a service which provides support to women who are still in an abusive relationship and to those who have recently left. The service provides advice, emotional and practical support. Outreach workers meet with the women on a regular basis, in safe environments, which can be their home or neutral places.

Leeway’s Advocacy service co-ordinates multi agency responses to the safety and risk management of women experiencing or fleeing domestic abuse. The workers’ aims are to reduce the risk of harm and repeat victimisation for women and their children and to support 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 and for those that have witnessed domestic abuse within their homes and families. We have dedicated children’s workers who visit communities, schools, homes and work within our refuges. Each service is designed to help children and young people, come to terms with their experiences. Leeway also works in local schools, delivering an educational programme and provides agency and corporate training. Leeway provides a male victim support worker.

Leeway believes in partnership working to prioritise the safety of women and children, and aim to empower their clients by providing them with the time and space they need to make safe decisions about their future.
