"I found the Refuge safe, helpful and lots of support from all staff. I felt I came in one person and came out a completely different person and that's because of the staff's advice and support. I am very grateful to Southern Domestic Abuse Service for reminding me what life is about. Thank you very much."

Sandra
"It is hard to suggest improvements to such an important, highly rated organisation, excellent staff and a wonderful house to stay in. I could find no fault or suggestions to improve such a high standard of care and support, and once again I'd like to thank all the staff and residents for your company. Thank you."

Ruth
"From the circumstances I left behind, I have felt safe living in this house. I have had good times and bad, but I am really grateful for all of your help, you have provided me with. Thank you."

Donna

Sharon
"I have found the support from Southern Domestic Abuse Service life saving for me. Without the support I couldn't imagine how my family and I could have moved on with our lives. I am eternally grateful for all your support both emotionally and advisory. I have gained so much more self worth from your help. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."

Yvette
"The one-to-one sessions were vital in providing support. They provided help in dealing with issues that were affecting me personally. The sessions have enabled me to deal with events. I am now able to recognise and cope with certain situations and know help is at hand if needed."

Kerrie
"Before I started using the Outreach Service I was worried and scared, but the advice and support has been great. The Outreach Worker has made me feel relaxed and comfortable. It is too soon to say it has helped, but I feel it will."
