Our Key Services
One Stop Shop/ Drop In Centres
The Domestic Abuse One Stop Shops are in central locations close to rail and bus routes. From these sites all of DASU services operate alongside visiting agencies such as solicitors and Citizens Advice.
This service provides prompt intervention and support at the time of crisis and helps people to access appropriate support to maintain their ongoing safety and freedom from abuse.
DASU facilitate psycho educational groups such as the Freedom Programme, Recovery Toolkit Programmes for both adults and children, Domestic Abuse Recovering Together (DART) programme, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Recovery programme and several others. For more information please contact us.
DASU manage several refuges for women across 4 counties in North Wales. We also have a two bedroomed refuge for men who need safe accommodation. Refuge accommodation may be a short term measure until it is safe to return home, or it may be longer term should families and individuals choose to stay and rebuild their lives.
DASU volunteers assist the organisation in many ways by fundraising, facilitating social groups and networks, helping with administration, mentoring and covering the 'on call' rota. All volunteers undertake a comprehensive training package and ongoing CPD. Find out more by giving us a call.
Outreach & Floating Support Services
Outreach supports people in the longer term following crisis or IDVA support. The support from our Outreach workers aims to maintain individual safety and continue to improve personal well-being.
Independent Domestic Violence Adviser (IDVA)
IDVAs provide support through the criminal justice system to victims of domestic abuse who are at high risk of further harm. This support aims to ensure that the victim is represented and supported through the criminal justice system and kept up to date about case progression and criminal charges.
