Getting Support

Feeling Isolated?

No matter how long an abusive relationship has been going on for, it can be daunting to ask for help. You may be living in fear and worry that there’s nothing that can be done. The impact of the abuse may have left you isolated from family, friends or co-workers.

These feelings are understandable and we want to make sure that when you do feel that you are ready, that you feel heard. It is possible that you may not be sure if you have experienced domestic abuse, or that others have told you that it’s not a big deal. That’s why at Hillingdon Women’s Centre, we have created a women-only safe space, where we will listen to you and will believe you.

How We Can Help

It is really important to get in touch with us if you need help. To contact us you can either call our centre directly on 01895 259 578, or get in touch online using our contact form. We can make you an appointment with our Case Worker to discuss your situation with you.

Our services are trauma-led and confidential; we know that every situation is different. Our Case Worker will complete a risk assessment, conduct a safety plan with you and discuss your rights and options. She can make referrals to appropriate services with your consent and will support you every step of the way. We will never push you into making a decision that you are not comfortable with and our support can continue for as long as you need.  It is not your fault, and we are here for you.

Remember that if it is an emergency, and you are in immediate danger you should contact the police by calling 999. You can dial ‘55’ if you are unable to talk.

Your safety is a priority.
