We offer practical help ranging from direct advice to refuge accomodation to those in urgent need. Our practical help and support includes the only local domestic abuse helpline which is 01273 622 828. We're here Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm. Our LGB&T* service for survivors of domestic abuse was the first in England, and we also provide one of the few dedicated LGBT refuge and support services. RISE provides crisis accommodation for women and children escaping domestic abuse. This is by way of a refuge - which is a secure and confidential address where people receive specialist support from staff trained to work with women and children affected by domestic abuse.
