Through one to one support, drop in and one stop shop provision, counselling, freedom programme and follow group programmes, support2court project, a telephone call back system and an employability programme, we strive to offer a service which increases choices and gives victims a voice  – enabling them to live a life free from fear.

The charity are looking for new trustees to join their committed and dynamic board. The new Trustees will assist the strategic development of a fast growing organisation and will work closely with the main Board of SATEDA to spearhead the development of the new CIC.
