More help for abuse victims

Domestic abuse victims in parts of Derbyshire will receive all the support they need to gain safe and independent lives thanks to a new contract awarded to a partnership between a charity supporting vulnerable people and North Derbyshire Women’s Aid (NDWA).

Trident Reach the People Charity and NDWA will be providing support services for those suffering from domestic abuse across North East Derbyshire, Bolsover, Chesterfield, South Derbyshire and Erewash.

The new service started on 1st October and anyone who is experiencing domestic abuse is encouraged to call the 24-hour access line on 0800 0198 668 as their first port of call. A local number, 01246 540444, is also available 10am-4pm, Monday to Friday.

Victims can then be referred for a range of support offered by both organisations._
