Behind Closed Doors was established in 1997 in North West Leeds and now supports women and men across the Leeds district who have, or are, experiencing domestic abuse. We have an Outreach team which works within the Leeds Domestic Violence Service, supporting people assessed as being at medium/high risk and/or needing help with significant practical issues like housing and civil legal proceedings.
