IDAS services include refuge accommodation, community based support, peer mentoring, group work and access to a free, confidential out of hours’ helpline.
They support people through the criminal justice system in addition to providing emotional support and safety planning advice.
Whilst they recognise that the majority of victims of domestic abuse and sexual violence are women, they support anyone who is affected by abuse or violence and encourage male and transgender people to access their services.
For children and young people, they have developed one to one and group support. Their young persons’ RYPP (Respect Young Person’s Programme) also works with families where the young person is abusive.Find out more at https://www.idas.org.uk or @IDASfor100
