Supporting survivors of Domestic Abuse
We offer sanctuary, support and empowerment to anyone affected by Domestic Abuse.
All our services are confidential and our staff and volunteers will listen to you and provide information, emotional and practical support for as long as you need us.
We recognise and acknowledge that whether you are experiencing Domestic Abuse now or have experienced it in the past, you have had to draw on all your inner strengths and resources to get through each day – which is why we use the term ‘survivor’ and not ‘victim’.
If you are affected by Domestic Abuse, please select the Get Help option to see the various options you have and to start getting the support you need.
To discover the many ways you could provide support, select the Give Help option - start making a positive change to a survivor and their family forever.
“It's helped a lot to get my feelings out, it's made me feel better about myself and deal with situations”
“I'm so grateful. I can't thank you enough for being there for me”

Our Vision is a world free from Domestic Abuse
Surrey Domestic Abuse Awareness Week is 10th to 14th June.
Please help us by sharing and liking any of our social media activity to help raise awareness of our services and the issues around domestic abuse.
We work with multiple external organisations such as the Police, local authorities, health agencies, children centres and voluntary organisations.
By having these relationships, we aim to improve their understanding of, and their responses to the survivors of Domestic Abuse.
We work with schools, colleges and youth clubs to help children and young people to understand what a healthy relationship is, and enable them to spot the signs of control and abuse more readily.
This work supports our Vision of a world free from Domestic Abuse and has been a lynchpin of our organisation.
For more information about our Awareness or Prevention programmes please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
“Since we have come to the refuge my son has become a very happy and confident boy. Before we came here he was very shy and wouldn't leave my side, but now he is quite happy to play with other children”
Volunteering for Your Sanctuary makes a huge difference to the lives of those experiencing domestic abuse.
By bringing your skills and knowledge into our organisation we can extend the support we offer to our clients to meet their individual needs.
You will find volunteering for us both challenging and rewarding – gaining new skills, new friends and new experiences.

We are part of the Surrey Domestic Abuse Partnership (SDAP) which is a group of independent charities who work together across the whole of Surrey to support survivors of domestic abuse and to build a future where domestic abuse is not tolerated in our communities.
