Provide high quality support services and generate solutions appropriate to the needs of our communities.Why the community needs us
Domestic abuse is the known as the hidden secret. It may be physical, psychological, emotional, sexual or financial. The physical injuries heal but the hidden impact of domestic abuse can leave individuals with post-traumatic stress, similar to those who have been in a war zone. Severe anxiety, low self-esteem, sleepless nights, fear of making connections and building new friendships can leave victims feeling isolated and disconnected from society. 1 in 4 women suffer domestic abuse.Our impact on the community
Through our support, women and children grow in confidence and self-esteem. Men learn to change their behaviour. Women and children become safer and learn to enjoy their lives again. The words of one of the mums express it best: "I just wanted to say on behalf of me and the children - a really big huge thank you. Splitz have been incredibly helpful and even life-saving to me and the children".
We're always looking for volunteers to join our Buddy Scheme. This offers emotional support to victims of emotional abuse. We give full training and support.
