What people say

girl on fp16-24


The whole range of services provides a very comprehensive pathway for women experiencing domestic violence – from the starting point receiving advice and support via the crisis line through to the refuge and resettlement for women leaving abusive relationships.

I couldn’t have done it without them if I had not taken that step, I would probably not be alive, but I am now free from DV and have a life back.

The Freedom Programme is one of the best things I've done... they keep reassuring you that you're doing right.

Former service user

I am still a 'work in progress' but I am getting there and getting stronger each week because of the knowledge, understand and the tools you have given me to get through it.

Former service user

I really value the work of Survive in South Gloucestershire and I know that this is also true of my health colleagues. They are very professional and yet very approachable and flexible, always willing to help.
