At Behind Closed Doors, we provide high-quality accessible services, offering understanding, thorough assessment and review processes and realistic support planning, tailored to each person’s own circumstances and needs.  Where appropriate, we work closely with other key agencies to achieve the desired outcomes.


We help people prevent the escalation of violence and abuse, stay safe, rebuild their self-esteem and autonomy and address the practical problems associated with domestic violence and abuse. Support is provided by phone and/or 1-1 in the community, meeting and working with people in their own homes, (or family or friends), workplace, children’s centres, GP surgeries; wherever they feel safe.

Services - what we do

Client Comments

What can I say; you have been such an important part of my life for the last ten months. I feel so much better now and have recently felt able to laugh out loud, which I haven’t done for so long. I feel happier, much stronger than I have in years. I could not have done any of this without your help.

Without you I know I would have been in a very dark place, a very lonely and very unhappy place.

All I can say is thank you from the bottom of my heart; you are a tremendous organisation which has made a massive difference to my life. I can say this now because I feel I have the start of a new life ahead.

You do amazing work and make such a difference to people’s lives. You saved me - I had some terrible thoughts, mostly, “what the hell is my purpose in life, would I be missed if I wasn’t here?” I always came up with the same answer; “NO”.

You have healed me and taught me to look past what one person thought of me, how they treated me and how they made me feel so worthless and a waste of space.

I am now a different person and would like to thank you for restoring my faith in life. THANK YOU
