New domestic abuse support service launches for Norfolk
People in Norfolk and their children who are at medium or high risk of serious harm from domestic abuse can now access a new, improved service to support their journey to freedom.
Norfolk Integrated Domestic Abuse Service (otherwise known as NIDAS) launched on 3 January 2022 and offers free, confidential and non judgemental support to those affected, and their children, to help them escape and recover from abuse.
This new service is funded by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Norfolk, Norfolk County Council, Norwich City Council along with South Norfolk and Broadland District Councils. It will be delivered in partnership by Leeway Domestic Violence & Abuse Services, Daisy Programme, Orwell Housing, Pandora Project and Safe Partnership.
Domestic abuse is an incident, or pattern of incidents, of controlling, coercive, threatening, degrading and violent behaviour - including sexual violence.
