Our Aim

To raise awareness and understanding about all aspects of domestic violence and abuse  within our local community in Babergh, Suffolk

We work to develop and promote good practice to make domestic abuse legally, socially, morally and culturally unacceptable

We Do This By….

Offering information through group work and one to one support

Providing opportunities to understand experiences and empower future choices 

Responding to needs by bringing new initiatives to those who want such specialised support, for as long as it is needed

How We Can Help…..

Do you want to understand more about your experiences and the tactics used by abusers?  The Freedom Programme helps you to learn about the reality of domestic violence and abuse

Do you feel it would be helpful to meet others who have experienced  domestic abuse? The support groups are friendly and informal and run by people who have themselves experienced domestic abuse 

Do you want to offer your children the opportunity  to understand the abuse and violence they may have heard or witnessed? The Stronger Families Community Programme creates a safe space in which children have the chance to do this

Do you find it difficult to attend the groups? Our Befriending Service can offer one to one support for as long as needed

Do Compassion run other programmes? We offer the who’s In Charge Programme for those experiencing child to parent violence, Escape the Trap supporting teenage relationship abuse and the Caring Dad’s Programme supporting father’s to develop more child-centred parenting.
