Derbyshire Domestic Violence and Sexual Abuse Service Aid is a charity which offers a range of services to help and support women, men and children who are affected by domestic abuse. Our aim is to increase safety and reduce risk to promote independent living and a reduction in repeat victimisation and offending.
Everyone has the right to live their life free from fear, violence and abuse. Sometimes it is difficult to know what is happening and you can feel confused and unsure about whether you are in an abusive relationship and the options available to you. You may feel frightened, humiliated and isolated.
You need to know that:
The discussions you have with us will be confidential unless we think that you or someone else is at risk of harm. If this is the case we will explain our reasons for sharing information and keep you informed at all times. We will sometimes suggest other people or agencies that may be able to help you and seek permission from you to share some information with them.
A further £50 has been received, many thanks to Integrated Commissioning Team Derby City Council who organised cakes and quiz.
DDVSAS has been awarded the Women’s Aid Federation National Quality Standards kite mark.
These standards form a set of criteria through which dedicated specialist services addressing domestic violence perpetrated against women and children can evidence their quality.
