Our Pledge? Domestic Abuse Stops Here.
The Dash Charity
Supporting people experiencing Domestic Abuse in the communities of East Berkshire and South Buckinghamshire for
more than 45 years.
We provide specialist support
We provide specialist support to adults and children experiencing mental health issues, modern slavery, immigration, trafficking, homelessness and complex needs associated with Domestic Abuse, empowering them to live a life beyond crisis and ensuring their voices are heard.
We help victims access free legal help, obtain injunctions, arrange for them to have screens and video-links if giving evidence at court and we will support them on the day.
We also speak up for them and advocate on their behalf with housing teams, police, social care. We provide safety devices to help them feel safer in their own home and help source donations of anything they need to make their life a little easier or a little brighter whilst they are trying to stay safe.
Our programmes help women, children and men recognise tactics of abuse, so they can feel more empowered and break the cycle of abuse.
