North Surrey Domestic Abuse Service (NSDAS) are part of a unique Citizens Advice Branch, Citizens Advice Elmbridge West, supporting the residents of Elmbridge, Spelthorne and Epsom & Ewell. NSDAS is part of the Surrey Domestic Abuse Partnership. Some 25% of reported crime in Surrey is domestic abuse. The service focuses on recovery from experiencing domestic abuse and provides crisis intervention for victims of domestic abuse, including safety planning, legal remedies and advocacy on their behalf with other agencies, such as Social Care and the Police. They also provide emotional support and run programmes to help victims to come to terms with their abuse and have a specialist children’s worker who supports children aged 5-18 affected by domestic abuse.
They identified an opportunity to help reduce anti-social and criminal behaviour through delivering ‘Staying Safe’ training, to 540 vulnerable children and young adults (aged 11-18), in targeted areas in Surrey. The workshops are designed to provide early intervention and target domestic abuse related crime prevention, focusing on raising awareness of Violence to Women and Girls; and Resilience versus Violence. The first workshops coincided with White Ribbon Day awareness campaigns.
