Our mission

We are a long-standing local charity – starting 35 years ago as a Rape Crisis service and expanding over the years to offer a range of prevention and support interventions to those affected by domestic abuse and related harmful practices.

We are on a mission to support anyone affected by or at risk of Domestic and Sexual Abuse (DSA).

We work with all ages and genders. We are proud to say the quality of our work has been recognised at national and international level because of the outcomes we achieve and the feedback we get from our service-users. You can read about our publications here.

We support our service-users who may have additional needs, ‘Protected Characteristics’ or life experiences that can heighten risks of abuse, compound the impact of abuse, or create barriers to accessing support.

Our services are free of charge and we aim to engage with and be accessible to all of our local communities – providing support that meets diverse needs, reduces harm, supports recovery and helps rebuild lives.

We are here to make a difference. Last year we directly worked with over 1,300 individuals, took 3,000+ calls and engaged with 13,000+ young people in schools and other youth settings. We listen to the views of our service-users and seek to offer interventions that local people need in the ways that work for them. We know the support we give can be a lifeline & make a real impact on those we work with. We work from our own premises in Southampton but also deliver services in other places like schools and community centres.
