Everyone has the right to live free from fear, threats and abuse.
We're here to help anyone who lives or works in the East Surrey area who has, or is experiencing domestic abuse.
What is Domestic Abuse?
It's NOT your fault and you are NOT alone.
Each year ESDAS receives over 2,000 referrals and 16,000 contacts from survivors, their loved ones and professionals.
Domestic Abuse can be controlling, coercive or threatening behaviour or violence and abuse between family members or partners. Its more widespread than you think and can happen to anyone of any gender, age, ethnicity, orientation or income.
We understand that it’s not easy to accept that a loved one can behave like this. Often because you cannot justify or explain the behaviour, you assume that it is your fault. You are not to blame for the abuse.
We're here to help you
Everyone has the right to live life free from threats, violence and abuse.
We’re here to listen, without judgement.
If you’re ready to think about leaving we can help you plan leaving safely, or if you are not ready we’re here to support you.
We can give you practical advice about your legal position or housing options or put you in touch with the right people to get the right help.
If you have children we can help you support them.
