Our emergency accommodation can be accessed any time, day or night, 365 days a year.
This accommodation is designed as temporary, safe accommodation so that you, and any children you have, can recover from an immediate crisis, access support, and consider your options in a safe and supported environment. There is always someone to offer you whatever support and advice you need, whenever you need it.
"Thank you for giving me my life back. I feel I can face the world again."
When you decide what to do next, we can support you to access housing, refer you to other organisations or projects that can support you further, or support you to return home if it is safe to do so. If you wish to return home we can, in partnership with other organisations, try and provide you with better security at your home address. We recognise that you may not wish to leave your home and we can support you in making informed choices about your safety options.
90% of children are present in the home when abuse occurs
Calan DVS provides support on moving out from our accommodation. We recognise the challenges that individuals face when moving out and our support is there to help you in your new home and community. Domestic violence can have lasting consequences that you may feel you need continued support to deal with. Similarly, your life may have changed in other ways, for example, your education or employment, which adds extra challenges and complications. Calan DVS' services can support you at these times.
