We are a member of women’s aid, a grassroots federation which has been dedicated to eradicating domestic violence for over 40 years.


We work in partnership with Agenda, an alliance which was formed in 2008 to improve the response to women within the criminal justice system.

Victim Focus

We are partnered with Victim Focus, formed in 2017, whose mission is to end victim blaming and move towards a trauma informed approach, to change the ways in which victims of abuse are portrayed and treated.
