RELATIONSHIP AND DOMESTIC ABUSE SUPPORT SERVICES

 

Our services are open to all women over the age of 18 experiencing domestic abuse or struggling in their relationship.

 

We are not a crisis service and do not specialise in emergency housing support but will be able to signpost to other appropriate agencies including applying for refuge. 

 

All our Relationship and Domestic Abuse Support Services can be accessed through our telephone line 01923 927 500 or email ally@watforwomenscentre.org.uk or by popping into Watford Women’s Centre and speaking with one of our team.

 

Individual Domestic Abuse Support and Specialist Migrant and Ethnic Minority support*

We offer face-to-face and telephone appointments with our specialist domestic abuse support workers including a specialist Migrant and Ethnic Minority worker who will listen and give accurate information in a supportive, non-judgmental environment.

 

Initially we would discuss the situation, assess safety needs, and discuss options.

 

The team would also be able to make free appointments with our legal partners around family law and immigration, talk about our current wellbeing and ‘My Life’ domestic abuse courses and discuss our counselling services with you, if appropriate. 

 

*Appointments with our specialist domestic abuse team will need to be booked in advance.  You will usually be offered an appointment within 1-3 days.

 

Immediate relationship and domestic abuse support through ‘My Ally’

Our My Ally telephone, email, face-to-face and online trained volunteers provide a listening ear and practical and emotional support. 

 

Our team of volunteers are all women with lived experience of domestic abuse.

You have helped me walk tall again, without the fear that has followed me for so long. You have shown me that we are worthy as women and that we have to hold on to our self-esteem even when others would try to destroy it. I became me again and turned a negative experience into a positive outcome.
