My Sisters Place
OUR NEW WEBSITE IS CURRENTLY UNDER DEVELOPMENT, COMING SOON.....
‘My Sister’s Place’ is a specialist domestic violence service based in central Middlesbrough. We provide direct services to women over 16 years of age who are or have suffered domestic abuse.
As a 'One Stop Shop' we aim to meet the varied needs of women suffering domestic violence and work in partnership with a range of external agencies to ensure we can access relevant support and protection. We make no judgements on your situation, our purpose is to make women and children safe.
We are not an emergency service and are not available 24 hours a day. If you are in any danger you need to phone the Police on 999. If you need to speak to someone in confidence out of office hours you can phone:
NATIONAL DOMESTIC VIOLENCE HELPLINE – 0808 2000 247
What we do:
We can help you understand your rights and can help you through legal processes, personal safety, debt, housing problems, immigration difficulties, child contact issues and divorce.
Feeling safe is as important as being safe and we can work with you to develop a personal safety plan and even have your home assessed for security through a scheme called Sanctuary. You may qualify for a range of security measures on your home (see Sanctuary Scheme).
My Sister’s Place is also committed to campaigning and raising the awareness of domestic violence. We provide a range of training courses to services and community groups, run women’s ‘survivor’ groups and facilitate a service user group to ensure that service user’s voices are at the heart of decision making.
