Middlesbrough Domestic Abuse Scheme

The Middlesbrough Domestic Abuse Scheme aims to help adults who are fleeing abusive relationships with safe, temporary fully-furnished accommodation.

The scheme provides support for women and men, with or without children, for approximately 12 weeks. During this time, we help people to find more permanent accommodation.

The service is tailored to individual needs and works with people to guide them through any difficulties they may face and help to rebuild their lives. Support can include work around:

  • domestic abuse
  • financial issues 
  • housing advice and support to find more permanent accommodation
  • helping people to access a range of other services.

Move-on options

After people move on from the scheme, we offer outreach support to make sure that people are coping in their new environment.

How to apply

Both men and women, with or without children can apply to the service.

We accept referrals directly or through any other organisation to:
