Domestic Abuse

Grand Union Housing Group can offer support and advice to people who are suffering domestic abuse.

It can take many forms and is not always physical violence by a man against a woman, as many people believe. Domestic abuse can be physical, mental or emotional. It can be perpetrated by a man or a woman and victims, too, can be either men or women. There can also be abuse between two people of the same gender.

Grand Union also operates a safe haven for victims of domestic abuse in the form of two recently opened refuges for women and their children.

If you are looking for local services that offer practical help and emotional support to people who have been the victim of any crime including domestic abuse, please see the Women's Aid website.
