A new domestic abuse service will be launching in Norfolk, providing joined-up support for those experiencing domestic abuse and helping their journey to freedom.

Norfolk Integrated Domestic Abuse Service (NIDAS) will offer free, confidential, and non-judgemental support to those affected, and their children, to help them recover and build a new life free from abuse.

The new service is funded by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Norfolk, Norfolk County Council, Norwich City Council, South Norfolk and Broadland District Councils, with £6.6million being invested over the next five years.

It will be delivered in partnership by Leeway Domestic Violence and Abuse Services, Daisy Programme, Orwell Housing, Pandora Project and Safe Partnership.
