Support from domestic abuse

Help from United Against Violence and Abuse (UAVA)

There might be more options than you think. UAVA can:

  • Help secure your home
  • Help you make a safety plan, understand your needs and think through what might help
  • Help you find somewhere safer to live temporarily
  • For women: Accommodate you in a shared, safe, women only refuge where specialist staff are on site
  • For men: Help you find safe accommodation, and support you while you do so
  • Help you find safe accommodation elsewhere if you are not safe in the area
  • Help the person who is abusing you find somewhere else to stay, if that helps you, and they are committed to change

The UAVA helpline is 0800 8020028 and is available Monday to Saturday from 8am to 8pm. Calls are free and will not show up on your bill.
