Independent Domestic Violence Advocate

Independent Domestic Violence Advocate

  • Our primary aim is to keep victims of domestic abuse, mostly women and children, safe from experiencing further abuse.
  • To do so, we work from a high level of empathy and compassion, whilst working alongside victims to be safer in the community, to be safer in their homes and to live a life free of abuse.
  • We provide victims with choices and safer lives options, support them at court and ensure that they have access to long-term help once we step back.
  • Experience of working with high risk victims of domestic abuse is essential as well as an understanding of how domestic abuse impacts on victims and their children.
  • You must have full knowledge of criminal, civil and practical options available to safeguard victims and their children.
