Support for young people

We offer group work and one-to-one support for young people who are experiencing domestic abuse.

The GDASS floating support team will work with anyone aged 16 and over. Your support will be designed around what you are worried about and will fit in around school, college or work.

We have a specialist Young Persons Violence Advocate (YPVA) who will work with those assessed as being at high risk of serious harm. She has specialist training to help you to stay safe.
