Springfield offers support to adults affected by domestic abuse in the South Lakes, within the community and refuge setting. Support can be sought by anyone currently affected by abuse, historic abuse, or worried about a loved one who may be actively experiencing abuse.
Support consists of a tailored specialist intervention, primarily to safeguard an individual, and minimize harm, but also to allow healing from trauma and therapeutic support, to move on.
Support can include counselling, information and advice, safety planning, referrals to other agencies for safeguarding, or more specialist support, such as benefits /housing advice.
Support can include advocacy and support when navigating agencies such as police/court/ children’s services.
Therapeutic groups are also available, including peer support, mindfulness, domestic abuse recovery, self-esteem and confidence, and a processing trauma group.
MARAC referrals are mandatory for safeguarding those most at risk.
