Our charity was started by volunteers back in 1979 and today we couldn’t offer the many different services without our volunteer involvement.
Volunteers are involved in our Board of Trustees, in our counselling service, fundraising in the local community and in our Volunteer Befriending Scheme .
We are very grateful for every hour the volunteers give us and for the help in raising the necessary funds to keep Crossroads Derbyshire going.
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.
Could you spare an hour once in a while to help us to raise funds? You could support us in local collections, or by attending or organising local events.
If you want to get involved we’d love to hear from you. Please contact us by phone on 01457 856675 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
