‘One stop shop’ services
If you are experiencing domestic abuse, our one-stop shops can act as the first point of contact for getting support. Everything you need is available under one roof.
A single place to address all your needs.
Refuge offers a number of services at one-stop-shops: single locations where clients are able to come and access a variety of specialist support. These locations act as the first point of contact for women, children, and men experiencing any type of domestic abuse in that area.
Local. Confidential. Non-judgemental.
One-stop shop services include outreach programmes, independent advocacy, group support, refuge accommodation and specialist services for teens. Many of our one-stop shops also provide services to men and transgender or questioning individuals who are experiencing domestic abuse.
