Our friendly and dedicated Victim Support Officers are always sensitive to your situation. That’s why they can arrange to meet with you at a location that’s convenient for you - whether that’s our office, your home, or a neutral territory.
We see it as our role to help in any way we can, from offering housing advice to attending court with customers. Above all, we provide an unbiased, non-judgemental approach and continued support for as long as our customers need it.
We completely understand that many victims of domestic abuse do not want to move and would simply prefer to feel safe and secure in their current home. In these situations we can offer a variety of practical solutions such as fitting window locks, strengthening doors or other security measures dependent upon the situation. We can also help with any associated stress by liaising with other agencies, such as the Police and Sunderland City Council, on your behalf. You can also benefit from referrals to professional support bodies such as counselling services.
