What do we do?

Responding to the Needs of Individuals and Making Change within Our Local Community

Sarah and Kim Hands

At HOMETRUTHS we do not judge and we understand your experience.  We know how difficult it is to speak out about what is happening and how scared people are who experience domestic abuse.  We know how embarrassed and confused you can feel and that you may feel you are to blame or that you are responsible for what has been or is happening.  We also know that it effects people for a long time even after the relationship has ended and that for many people the abuse doesn't stop when the relationship ends. 

We do not have contact with perpatrators of domestic abuse - our support and services are entirely for survivors and victims of domestic violence and abuse.

We can offer you support, information and safety planning to help you make the right choices for yourself and your children.  We work with other agencies and can link you in with services that can help such as: solicitors, housing services, financial and benefit advisors, counsellors, domestic abuse unit, refuges, courts and children's centres.  We support people who are still in abusive relationships as well as those who are no longer with their abusive partner, whether this is following a recent separation or if you find you are still affected many years later.

HOMETRUTHS supports people experiencing domestic abuse on a one to one basis as well as running groups for survivors of domestic abuse. We have specialist Independent Domestic Violence Advocates who can help keep people safe.

"The most important thing HOMETRUTHS offered me was that very first phone call when I was in bits.  You told me about the situation with so much knowledge and I realised it wasn't my fault.  I do feel I have had all the support you could offer me, all the way through." Gemma - HOMETRUTHS Service User
