Domestic Abuse Support

Foundation offers two domestic abuse services:

Foundation Durham’s Domestic Abuse Navigator Service (DAN) – based in County Durham

The DAN Service provides a responsive integrated support service for clients with complex needs who are fleeing domestic abuse. We provide assertive outreach and strength based needs led support to help clients (and their children) navigate and overcome barriers which have prevented them from accessing stable accommodation. The service supports clients to enable them to take control back over their lives and improve their safety, well-being and independence.

The service also supports men who have experienced domestic abuse to enable them to take back control of their lives, regaining their independence and improving their sense of safety and well-being.

The Positive Choices programme is available for anyone, regardless of gender or sexual orientation aged 16 years and over who is a perpetrator of domestic abuse, including repeat offenders and adolescents violent toward parents, who wish to voluntarily address their abusive behaviour.
