Our mission

Is to protect women and children in Leeds from the damage that domestic violence can inflict on their lives. We believe that all women and children have the right to live their lives free from fear and harm. We will achieve this by providing women with choices from a range of services including temporary supported housing, outreach support, telephone support and floating support.

Panic Button

I was also supported by my key workers with

housing and was able to start a fresh life

with my children.
