First steps

We recognise that everyone’s needs will be different and we are committed to supporting you through your recovery journey together.

VOICES offer a range of services by and for those who are struggling after having experienced domestic abuse. As well as recovery work we can help women to identify abusive behaviour in current relationships through our group work.

We are not able to offer crisis support so if you are currently at risk of harm within an abusive relationship and want help to be safe, please contact:
* The Police in an emergency 999
To report a crime 101 or online here:
* Southside Family Centre on 01225 331243
