Domestic Abuse Volunteer Support Services (DAVSS) is a community-based charity. We receive many self-referrals asking for help as well as referrals from the Police, other agencies including health and social services, and voluntary organisations. All of our Domestic Abuse Advisors are volunteers who undertake intensive Quality Mark training.
DAVSS aims to break the cycle of abuse, enable survivors to take control of their lives again and improve life opportunities for their children who are often traumatised by their experiences. We work across the West Kent area, running the Domestic Abuse helpline from our offices in Tunbridge Wells.
We provide practical and individual support to our clients including:
Access to our Helpline weekday mornings giving immediate safety advice (answerphone outside of these hours)
Face-to-face support at venues convenient to clients for those at high risk of serious harm, offering them options for action and support
Signposting to other agencies or voluntary groups e.g. Police, Social Services, Citizens Advice Bureau, Benefits and Housing, Health Professionals, Counselling, etc.
Providing Support to Court to clients who often find this process very daunting and frightening
Raising public awareness by arranging presentations, workshops, attending business and community events and providing safe and healthy relationship courses for young people in schools and colleges
We need your help as our challenge is to raise sufficient funds each year to continue to offer this much needed service.
Thank you for your support and good luck in the Lotto!
