Accommodation and support for women escaping domestic violence
Providing support for people affected by domestic violence is a sensitive and vital service. We have three supported living safe houses that provide women and their children with help to rebuild their lives, recover from trauma and learn skills to protect themselves.
Supported living safe houses
Beverley Lewis House
Beverley Lewis House (BLH) is a unique and specialist housing project which provides a safe environment for women with learning disabilities, who might also have additional or complex needs.
We provide 24 hour support and safeguarding for vulnerable women who have experienced domestic violence or some form of abuse and need help to recuperate, work through their distress and develop strategies for personal safety.
Beverley Lewis House also provides other specialist support helping women recover from abuse after a forced marriage.
Newham Women's Refuge
Newham Women's Refuge is a shared supported housing scheme in Newham for women fleeing domestic violence in a personal or family relationship. Residents can stay at the scheme for between six and 12 months, with the aim of gaining the confidence and skills to move on to independent living.
The scheme houses up to 11 women and 24 children and provides a temporary place of safety at a confidential address. It’s staffed Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm, with on-call support available outside these hours.
Brook Haven Women’s Refuge is a safe house which provides temporary accommodation for women and their children who are fleeing domestic violence.
The house has five self-contained flats and shared facilities on site giving our residents the space, security and privacy to get through the initial trauma of leaving a violent relationship. Our staff at the scheme are all female, and provide residents with the support, information and practical assistance needed to take control of their life in a non-abusive environment.
