Experiencing Domestic Violence?
Domestic violence can happen to anyone and it is never acceptable.
If you are experiencing domestic violence you can get help to make it stop. The attached information booklet gives lots of very useful information about how you can get help.
If you need to flee your home you can contact us at any time of the day or night. An officer can talk to you about your housing needs and we may be able to help by finding you accommodation.
Refuge Outreach Support Service may be able to provide support, which will ensure you have someone to talk to, together with practical advice and assistance when you need it.
If you prefer to stay in your own home you may be able to use the Sanctuary Scheme. The Sanctuary scheme helps people experiencing domestic violence to stay safe, secure and supported in their own homes.
It is available to anyone living in Eastbourne who is at a risk of losing their home as a result of domestic violence.
You can only access the Sanctuary Scheme via a referral from the police and not directly from the council.
