Domestic abuse

Domestic abuse can take many forms and can be physical, mental, emotional, financial or sexual. Most children who live with domestic abuse know it is happening and are affected by it.

We understand this and are here to support anyone who has experienced any form of domestic abuse, both adults and children.


Crisis situations

We’re here to make sure families have the basic items that we should all have – food, warmth and shelter.

According to the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, more that one in five people in the UK are in poverty. This is around 14.5 million people and includes 4.3 million children.

Liverpool Council ranks Liverpool as the 3rd most deprived local authority out of 317 English local authorities, with 23,664 children living in low income families and 33,672 households living in fuel poverty.
