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 operate seven safe houses and people experiencing domestic abuse and their children are welcome to stay as long as necessary to secure a future free from a dangerous partner.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.”
Volunteering is a great way to help others, meet new people and add valuable experience to your CV. We have a range of volunteer positions across our organisation and we’re always looking for more people to join our dedicated and enthusiastic team.Volunteer with Leeway
