The Safe and Secure scheme helps victims of domestic abuse who want to stay in their home following the break-up of an abusive relationship, but who are worried about their abusive partner being able to gain access to the property.
The multi-agency scheme involves a free security assessment of your property and advice on any work that needs to be done to ensure that your home is secure. This might include additional or replacement locks, bolts, window locks, repairs to damaged doors or windows.
St Leger Homes works with other agencies to provide the Sanctuary scheme for their tenants. If you are a St Leger Homes tenant, contact your local estate officer if you would like to apply for Sanctuary.
If you own your own home or rent from a Housing Association or private landlord, Doncaster Domestic Abuse service will work with you and your landlord to ensure your home is secure, so that you can stay there if you wish. To access the Safe & Secure or Sanctuary schemes phone Doncaster Domestic Abuse Helpline on 0800 4701 505.
