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 email@example.com 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.
