With the support of the highly dedicated team; Women are empowered to reach their full potential and live safe and productive lives whenever possible.

STAAR (Survivors of Trauma Abuse and Addictions Recovery)

The role of the Trauma, Abuse and Addictions Worker is to support women who are experiencing co-occurring domestic abuse and substance misuse issues.

​Women who are referred to the STAAR service should expect to receive sensitive and holistic support from an experienced member of our staff team who understands the difficulties faced by Women who have lived experience of both Domestic Abuse and Addiction.

The STAAR project has had an overwhelmingly positive response from our partner agencies, who have noted the correlation between domestic abuse and substance misuse with positive feedback on outcomes for women they referred. Professionals and service users have reiterated the desperate need within the local area for a bespoke service to best support women who experience both.
