Domestic Abuse

Our friends IDAS offer support for people who have or experiencing domestic abuse. They are very LGBTQIA+ friendly

IDAS is the largest specialist charity in Yorkshire supporting anyone experiencing or affected by domestic abuse or sexual violence.

Our services include refuge accommodation, community based support, peer mentoring, group work and access to a free, confidential out of hours’ helpline.

Our teams of accredited specialist workers (IDVA’s and ISVAs) support people through the criminal justice system in additional to providing emotional support and safety planning advice.

Whilst we recognise that the majority of victims of domestic abuse and sexual violence are women, we support anyone who is affected by abuse or violence and encourage male and transgender people to access our services.

For children and young people, we have developed one to one and group support. Our young persons’ RYPP (Respect Young Person’s Programme) also works with families where the young person is abusive.

We pride ourselves on our professional, responsive and innovative approach.  With over 40 years’ experience we have been at the forefront of developing new and unique services and were the first organisation in the UK to develop free online training and Live Chat support for survivors.

Our funding comes from the local authority, trusts, the Police Crime Commissioner, donations and grants.
