How we can help

SLDAS believe that all women have the right to live live free from violence, abuse and fear. We offer FREE and accessible support to women who experience domestic violence or abuse including: 

  • Telephone and face to face emotional and practical support
  • Therapeutic programmes or self-esteem course
  • Activity groups at our Garston venue and local community buildings
  • Specific young person's services

You can read more about our services here

Since 1998 SLDAS have supported over 3000 women to overcome their experience of domestic violence and abuse.


We provide services in a range of languages, enabling as many women as possible to gain support in a language that they are most comfortable with.

Types of abuse


Domestic abuse can involve any incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive or threatening behaviour, violence or abuse. It can apply to people: 


  • Aged 16 or over
  • Who are or have been intimate partners or family members
  • Any gender or sexuality

Domestic abuse can include the following types of abuse:


  • Psychological: Jealousy, humiliation, degradation, put downs, isolation from family and friends, threats of suicide, using your children to inform or report on you.
  • Physical: Beating, kicking, slapping, punching, burning, strangulation, stabbing or denying you sleep.
  • Sexual: Rape, enforced sex or prostitution, pornography, or any sexual behaviour or activity which you find unacceptable.
  • Financial: Withholding money or always calling you to account for your spending.
  • Emotional: Name calling or threats to harm you or your children.

Remember, domestic abuse is never your fault. No one deserves to be treated in any of the ways described above. You have a right to be treated with respect and kindness by your partner and your family.
