Foundation Durham

Foundation Durham provides a mixture of accommodation-based, floating and triage support to clients across County Durham.

Domestic Abuse Navigator Service (DAN):

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 and enables them to take back control of their lives, regaining their independence and improving their sense of safety and well-being. 

Complex Needs Service:

The Complex Needs Service provides supported accommodation, group work and triage services to those with complex needs across Co Durham. The service provides tailored support to address the client’s individual needs, to maximise independence, working towards successful move-on in to independent living and reducing social isolation.
