View this site privately

Behind Closed Doors was established in 1997 and now supports women and men across the Leeds district who have, or are, experiencing domestic violence and abuse.


We have a Community DV 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.


Our Prevention and Recovery Service (PARS) works to support people at lower levels of risk who require more emotional support and information to make sense of their experience, recover and move on positively.
