You may have decided to stay in an abusive relationship or situation for any number of reasons. You should take time to consider how you can best keep yourself and any children as safe as possible. No matter what you decide to do, DASU will always support you. Speak to a support worker who can help you make a safety plan and assess your risk.

Not all domestic abuse leaves a mark, but if you have been physically injured, consider telling someone or make a record and share with someone you trust such as a GP or a close friend. This evidence may be useful in the future if abusive behaviour persists.

If you have someone you trust, let them know what’s happening. They may want to give you advice and tell you what you should do because they are worried about you, but you know your situation best and the decision is always yours. DASU is always here if you need advice, support or help.

Remember you are not responsible for the abuse, or for what someone else does, even if they insist that you are.


Leaving an abusive relationship is daunting. If you haven’t already, contact DASU or the Live Fear Free Helpline for support and advice. We can talk you through your options such as getting into a refuge or other emergency accommodation. We can advise on what to do next and help keep you safe.

If at any time you are in danger, or you fear for your safety or the safety of someone else, always contact Police on 999.

DASU Refuge

DASU has a range of communal and dispersed refuge units across our four counties. We offer safe spaces to Women, Men and their children when they have been forced to flee their homes.

We know that people do not to choose to leave their home and go into refuge accommodation, unless they had to. So, we make sure all our refuge spaces are as welcoming as possible and offer a temporary home for individuals at this time of greatest need. 

We can offer accommodation to individuals with specific religious or cultural beliefs, limited mobility, complex needs which may impact on their everyday life or if you are fleeing with older children or a pet. We are constantly reviewing our refuge accommodation to ensure we are available to everyone who needs us. 

Whilst in Refuge we will support you to secure your new home or return safely to your old home. Once you move out of refuge the support continues through our outreach service, we will help you recover and move on.

Children and Young People

DASU have Children and Young people workers across our four counties. We believe that any child or young person living with or affected by Domestic Abuse should have equal access to services in their own right

In doing so we can help them to recover, identify and maintain healthy relationships and reduce the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences in the future. Therefore, we have a dedicated team of Children and Young People support workers, advocating and supporting their clients to enable them to live free from fear.


DASU provide a regional IDVA service across Wrexham, Flintshire Denbighshire and Conwy. The Service offers support from a team of expertly trained specialist domestic violence advisers that offer support 24/7 356 days a year to high-risk victims of domestic abuse.

This service commissioned by North Wales Police and Crime Commissioner is a team of specialists who offer support to clients to navigate the Criminal Justice system, access wider support in relation to civil legal issues, access to Domestic Violence Protection Orders, Child access and visitation orders, representation at MARAC and safety planning support including providing safety equipment for the home.

Your Rights

Do you need more information on your human and legal rights. Sometimes individuals need this advice and information to enable them to make safe and informed choices for themselves and their families. Without this advice and information, women will continue to experience violence, abuse and discrimination and cannot play an equal role in society.

The Rights of Women’s website works ensure that, at some of the most difficult times in their lives, women are able to talk to a lawyer who can give them expert and non-judgemental legal advice or get clear and accessible information about the law and their legal rights.
