We offer a range of confidential support and advisory services to women, men, children and young people suffering the damaging effects of domestic abuse including:
Refuge for young women and children needing a safe place to stay
Outreach services for women and men
Community programmes for young people
Counselling for women and men
Specialist services for children
First established in Glossop in 1979, we have since expanded our area to work with people from all areas of High Peak and Derbyshire Dales.
We strive to prevent abuse by raising awareness and promoting change that lasts.
Our vision is to continue to sustain and develop our range of existing services to ensure that those affected by domestic abuse are able to access effective and timely support which is guided by the service user’s needs and wishes.
We will do this by:
using information gathered from a local and national perspective to analyse gaps in provision, creating and developing services that respond to need.
using our expertise and our knowledge, to continuously improve on our ‘cutting edge’ approach to service delivery in the field of domestic abuse.
seeking opportunities to maintain financial stability and put in place a robust staffing structure which meets the needs of our operational function.
This award covers every area of activity: promoting good governance, effective strategy, leading and managing people well, effective delivery of operations, efficient use of finance and resources, maximising income generation and effective communications.
The system also assesses key crisis health check indicators, including maximising impact, short-term resilience, longer-term sustainability, how good the charity is at getting funding to front line activities, legal & compliance and how well everyone is kept safe from harm.
If you think you or someone you know is experiencing abuse, help is available.
