“I was believed! This has given me great confidence!”
LWA provides information and advice, as well as practical and emotional support, to anyone experiencing domestic abuse and/or sexual violence in Leicester City, Leicestershire and Rutland. Outside of this area please use the WAFE website to find your local service.
We have a number of services available which are here to help people affected by domestic abuse and sexual violence to safely escape and start a new life.
Our main Services
The Outreach Service provides help and advice over the phone and in person in a variety of ways, including practical support, security measures, support with the legal system and resettlement.
We provide a range of services for 0 to 19 year olds and their families living in Leicester City including one to one and group programmes, and support for parents.
Sexual Violence Services
An independent service providing support to children, young people, men and women who have experienced rape and/or sexually assaulted. We have an ISVA service for those going through court and The Amber Project supports those who choose not to, or are unable, to engage in the criminal justice process.
We run several programmes for survivors. These programmes help survivors of abuse to understand what has happened to them, why it has happened and to take steps to a more postive future.
