BWA’s Women’s Outreach Services
Bexley Women’s Aid’s Outreach Workers provide one-to-one support to women facing abuse in the community. Some women may be living with their abuser, while other women may have left their abuser but still need support. Leaving an abusive relationship is a process, and our Outreach Workers provide emotional and practical support in all aspects of their lives; including risk assessment, safety planning, housing support, reducing isolation and financial empowerment. BWA supports women to support their children.
All women who experience or have recently experienced domestic abuse and other forms of gender-based violence can access our outreach service. Our Outreach Workers create tailor made support plans to suit the needs of any victim of abuse.
BWA’s Outreach Workers can offer support and guidance around: first disclosures, preparing to leave, safety planning, child contact, the criminal justice system, rebuilding family or friend relationships, referrals and signposting to local specialist services or helping you cope with the emotional effect of abuse.
This one-to-on support is can be provided face-to-face, over the telephone, on our Helpline, in groups, or at our One Stop Shop or legal clinic. All of this support helps women develop practical strategies to keep themselves and their children safe.
