Domestic Abuse happens in South West Surrey. It’s probably happening in your neighbourhood. Some of it will be behind closed doors and much of it to and by people that you would not expect. Rates in our area have increased over the past few years.
As one of only two Citizens Advice services in the country to host a specialist domestic abuse service, this places us in a prime position to provide an integrated service assisting clients affected by domestic abuse alongside additional support provided by our Citizens Advice team.
South West Surrey Domestic Abuse Outreach Service is a member of the Surrey Domestic Abuse Partnership – a group of four independent charities (including ESDAS, Your Sanctuary, North Surrey Domestic Abuse Service) – working together across the whole of Surrey to ensure that survivors of domestic abuse are safe, and to build a future where domestic abuse is not tolerated.
The service does this by providing free, confidential, independent and impartial advice to anyone aged 16 or above affected by domestic abuse living in the boroughs of Waverley and Guildford. The service provides skilled practical help, ongoing emotional support, and information and advice on issues such as safety planning, housing rights, relationships and separation, civil and criminal court proceedings, and the needs of children affected by domestic abuse. The support offered can be on the telephone, face to face at a safe venue, or by email.
