RISE support groups

Domestic abuse can be extremely isolating, so our support groups an invaluable way of making you feel understood and less alone.

Peer Support Groups

*Due to covid difficulties, we are unable to run our peer support groups at this time. We hope to resume our normal services very soon.*

We run regular groups for women in Brighton and Hove who are currently affected by domestic abuse, or who have experienced it in the past.

It can be helpful to talk to other women who have had similar experiences, share coping techniques and practical advice. The Peer Support Group is a safe and supportive space facilitated by an experienced RISE case worker.


A 10 week recovery and empowerment support group for women in Brighton and Hove, who are no longer in an abusive relationship. The group looks at:

  • Trauma
  • Communication
  • The impact of abuse
  • Coping strategies

ReGroup moves women towards recovery through improving self-esteem and assertiveness.

*During lockdown, our ReGroup course has been adapted into a 8-week online course, recognising the importance of consistent support and community for our service users living in Brighton and Hove. This format will be kept under review to prioritise the safety of our service users and staff.*

Attending this group was an extremely valuable and rewarding experience which helped me to build more of an identity based around that of a survivor rather than a victim.
