We rely on the generosity of local people, businesses and other charities to support us. As demand on our service grows, we need more help than ever.
Regular donations give us the security we need to continue to support local individuals and families dealing with the damaging effects of domestic abuse and violence. There are lots of ways to donate:
The Harmony Project
This video was made by one of the young women at the project. It shows the refuge and talks about some of the support on offer.
The Harmony Project provides safe accommodation, refuge and intensive support to young women (aged 16-24), and their children, who are homeless as a result of relationship abuse, sexual exploitation and forced marriage. The refuge was the first in the country to focus on supporting this age group, who are the most vulnerable and at risk of serious harm. We deliver meaningful activities and group sessions within the project, aimed at keeping safe, supporting recovery and building resilience and self-esteem.
We provide domestic abuse outreach support for adults living in the High Peak and Derbyshire Dales. We support adults to leave abusive relationships and empower them with emotional and practical help to keep safe. We offer support with housing, legal issues and recovery work.
We provide counselling and aftercare to survivors of domestic abuse and help them to improve their mental health. We focus on a healthy, safe future for all the family.
The Freedom Programme
The Freedom Programme offers a 12-week course to help women understand the beliefs held by abusive men and in doing so recognise which of these beliefs they share.
If you think you or someone you know is experiencing abuse, help is available.
