Support & advice

RISE offers emotional support and practical advice to survivors of domestic abuse and their families living in Brighton and Hove.

Domestic abuse impacts your life in many ways. For example:

  • You might be worried about your housing, finances or safety.
  • You may be worried about the effect of abuse on your children.
  • You may be going through Court or Family Court and need to understand your rights and the process.
  • You could be struggling to manage financially and need advice.

When you contact us we will listen and offer the support, advice or signposting you need.

This could include an invitation to a workshop or group, or referring you for therapy. You can find out more about these below.

Keeping yourself and your family safe, fed and warm is the highest priority. Click here to find out some of the practical ways we can help you here.

Some of the ways we can help you

If you need our support, call our helpline on 01273 622 822

We also host a free, weekly, one-to-one drop-in for any woman experiencing domestic abuse who is also:

- living with a long-term health condition
- living with an impairment
- neurodivergent
- women aged 55+

We can also talk with you if you are a friend or family member concerned about someone who meets one of these criteria and want to get some advice about how to provide support.

The drop-in is a safe space to talk through your concerns, get free advice or find out more about your options. No need to book an appointment. Simply turn up and follow the signs, or ask any member of staff for RISE.

For more information about the drop-in please email us at [email protected]
