We have a dedicated, trained Domestic Abuse Specialist Adviser to provide targeted and sensitive advice and wraparound support to those living with or escaping domestic and sexual abuse.


In addition to the provision of advice, our adviser also trains our General Advice Service to recognise signs of domestic, sexual and financial abuse and in sensitively offering further support.


Citizens Advice is a trusted advice service and independent body. Clients are more inclined to come to us, and other nongovernmental bodies, than the police.

Our service is supportive, professional, confidential and complies with safeguarding rules. We work closely with First Light Domestic Support services and other agencies, providing a complimentary service to help survivors access housing in safe areas, income and benefits, write off debt, gain confidence and start new lives.


If you need to contact the specialist abuse team text the phrase “ADVICE DA” to 07395 324314. 


Please include information about the best day/time to contact you, so that we can do so safely.
