We have seven safe houses in the city including a dedicated house for black and ethnic minority women and children, a house for single women and a block of self-contained units. In the safe houses we can house up to 38 families at any one time.
The housing is direct access and women and children can move in immediately and they can stay for up to six months.
Where possible, when families move on, we offer resettlement support to enable them to settle into their new communities. For the women who returned to their partners we encourage them to keep in touch in case they needed to use a safe house again.
