Domestic violence

Anybody who is experiencing domestic or sexual violence can find help, support and advice on the End the Fear website. They also provide help and support to people who know someone who may be being abused. They want to encourage victims of domestic and sexual violence in Greater Manchester to find the courage to come forward and seek support and help. You don’t have to put up with domestic abuse.  

The Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme (DVDS), better known as Clare’s Law, was first launched in September 2012. It gives victims the opportunity to apply for disclosure of an individual they are in a relationship with, or in a relationship with someone they know (right to ask).

Young people

  • Fixers UK – helping young people tackle the issues that get them fired up!

Fixers is a movement of young people tackling issues they feel strongly about to make a difference to others. ‘Fixers’ are young people who want to change things for the better. Many have been through difficult times, and have used that experience to campaign on issues that matter to them, like being homeless, domestic abuse, or drink and drug misuse.
