Domestic Violence Support


Working to end domestic violence against women


No woman should have to suffer domestic abuse alone and unaided. As a dedicated women's charity, the professionals at PHOEBE are compassionate providers of domestic abuse support and advice and strive to help any domestic violence victims in the wider region put an end to the dangerous circumstances they are living in.

Outreach support for victims of domestic violence


PHOEBE has been delivering support to the migrant, black and Asian community in Ipswich for the last five years. We offer advocacy support in securing safe, temporary accommodation in refuges for women and children fleeing domestic violence. Practical support is often what women need in times of stress; hence, we offer women access to food and toiletries, but most crucially, we offer casework assistance in addressing the complex paperwork that is involved within the courts and Home Office.

Domestic Violence Support and Immigration Advocacy


We signpost women for immigration advice and support to other women's organisations who give immigration advice and to Immigration solicitors. Please call us on 01473 231566. We ensure that a woman’s legal status does not remain a tool for her abuser to use against her. This service is crucial, as there is limited provision in this specialist immigration area, hence we have good links to dependable providers. Our partners can offer advice and guidance over the telephone to professionals needing help to understand a woman's entitlements and immigration status.


Should you require any aspect of domestic abuse counselling or the services of a women's support group, we urge you to contact our experienced caseworkers today to take advantage of the domestic violence support we can offer you during this difficult time. Similarly, should you suspect that any of your female relatives or friends is experiencing domestic abuse, we encourage you to get in touch for further advice and information about the help that we can provide. .
