Welcome to Compassion

Supporting those who have experienced domestic abuse to rise with strength

Slide

If you are in a relationship where you are doing things because you think you should or you have to, not because you want to, that’s not love and we are here to listen.

Slide

Abuse in relationships is not acceptable. Everyone has a right not to live in fear, or feel like they are walking on eggshells.

Slide

Alcohol, drugs, growing up in a violent home are not excuses to be be abusive to a partner or ex-partner.

Slide

Abuse is not just about broken bones, bruises or black eyes but includes telling someone what to do, what to wear, who to see, constantly putting them down, making them do sexual acts they don't want to do.

Don't live in fear!!!
Help and support is available now!!

What We Do

Compassion supports all victims of domestic abuse, both current and historic, providing information/ advice and a range of support services over the phone, online and face to face. We exist to end domestic abuse through the interventions we offer to victims and through awareness raising campaigns and initiatives. Domestic abuse will only thrive in silence and darkness, we are here to talk about it and shine a light on this complex issue that affects every one of us.

As a charity we rely heavily on donations and the tireless work of our volunteers, who give their time freely to deliver programmes and run our range of support services.

This commitment has driven Compassion forward and earned us high regard from other professionals within the field of domestic abuse services.

Our Aim

To raise awareness and understanding about all aspects of domestic violence and abuse nationally and locally.

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

Our Background

Compassion was founded in 2001. As an independent, multi-agency forum we worked alongside other forums to raise awareness of domestic violence and abuse related issues. We are now a registered charity with the Charity Commission.

It has always been important, to us to develop local resources for those who have experienced domestic abuse as well as influence policy and agency response within our local area. With these aims in mind, we bring new support initiatives through our local services and work with the County Domestic Abuse Forum, informing policy decisions related to domestic abuse within Suffolk.
As a charity we rely heavily on donations and the tireless work of our volunteers, who give their time freely to deliver programmes and run our range of support services.
