Salford Independent Domestic Abuse Support Service
Salford Independent Domestic Abuse Support Service (SIDASS) provides independent advocacy and specialised support to victims living in Salford. The team offer advice and support on safety planning, crisis work, civil and criminal remedies, housing advice, finances, health issues and work with families to improve issues around child protection where domestic abuse is a prevalent factor. The victim is supported by a qualified Independent Domestic Abuse Advocate through a safety and support plan to improve their safety and encourage the best possible outcomes from other statutory and voluntary agencies.
The project was developed in 2006 by Salford City Council’s Community Safety Unit and Salford Women’s Aid working together in partnership. SIDASS has supported thousands of victims of domestic abuse and work over the short to medium-term, to put victims on the path to long-term safety.
