Established in 1974, Leeway is an independent charity providing support to adults, young people and children who are experiencing domestic abuse in Norfolk and Suffolk. We are founding members of WAFE (Women’s Aid Federation England) and every year provide specialist support to over 9,000 adults, children and young people.About Us
Domestic abuse goes beyond violent behaviour and physical abuse. It also includes any type of sexual, psychological and financial abuse and is about a range of coercive and controlling behaviours. It also includes ‘honour based violence’, female genital mutilation (FGM) and forced marriages. Domestic abuse can happen in any relationship – regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion or social class or income.
If you are being forced to change your behaviour because you are scared of your partner or your family member's reaction, it's likely that you are being abused.
There are a number of ways you can help Leeway, including:
“Being in the refuge made me stronger as a person and also more independent. Leeway also helped me to relocate so it helped me to move on in more than one way.”
We would like to thank the following authorities, organisations and businesses for their ongoing support of our work.
