Sanctuary Scheme

If the fear of domestic abuse is making you think about moving, the Sanctuary Scheme could make it possible for you to stay living safely in your own home, if the perpetrator no longer lives there.

The scheme is free and removes the fear of living at home by installing extra security to your property.

The scheme can be accessed by contacting:
