Domestic abuse

This includes physical, sexual, psychological, emotional, verbal or financial abuse.

We have a dedicated team that will advise and support you through the process. You can contact our Rehousing and Support Team on 01604 838591. You can also contact your Housing Officer via our contact centre, the One Stop Shop or our out of hours telephone number.
