No one should experience domestic abuse. Everyone has the right to feel safe, protected and empowered. At Cranstoun, we are here to help, we are here to empower and we’re here to challenge and change abusive behaviour.
Why Cranstoun helps
Domestic abuse is a crime. All people should be able to feel safe in their homes and communities. No one deserves to experience violence, emotional abuse, financial abuse or any form of controlling, harmful behaviour. Here at Cranstoun, your safety, mental health and physical wellness is of our utmost concern and our compassionate, experienced and dedicated domestic abuse team is here to support you, your family and your community.
As well as being committed to supporting survivors, we are passionate about intervention for those who are displaying abusive behaviour. We feel it is important to engage with the root of the problem and do our bit to highlight, educate and transform.
With every person that comes forward, every family brought to safety and every perspective transformed for the better, we are working to create a safer world for everyone.
How Cranstoun helps
Domestic abuse can affect anyone. It does not discriminate, and here at Cranstoun we understand that each case is unique and can be complicated. When you work with Cranstoun, we will focus on the safety of you and your family. This is our priority.
Cranstoun can offer the following:
- Assessment and support for victims and children
- Assessment and support for those engaged in abusive behaviour
- Support for children in schools
- Mentoring support for survivors (as well as uplifting groups for survivors to support one another)
- Behavioural change programmes
- Signposting to other relevant organisations
- Support for people seeking refuge
- Education, advice and resources
Your life is our priority, your safety is our priority and your happiness is our priority.
If you or someone you know is facing domestic abuse or is displaying abusive behaviour, please get in touch.
