Crisis response service

This innovative service offers intensive crisis support to women and children who are threatened with homelessness because of domestic abuse.

Often women become homeless when they are in a domestic abuse crisis because they feel there are no other options but to leave the violent home.

This service responds the same day and will assist women to access emergency legal remedies to help her stay in her own home and extra security in the home to keep the family safe.

The worker will go with women to a solicitor and escort them to court.

When it is not safe to stay the worker will find safe housing accommodation within the city or outside of Bristol.

The support is offered for 4 weeks and then if appropriate the family is referred to the resettlement service or other Next Link services.
