Living Without Abuse... help and support for ANYONE suffering from domestic abuse

"I can't tell you what a difference you have made in my life, you've allowed me to re-find myself and become strong again."


Living Without Abuse (LWA) believes that all people have the right to live safely and without fear of violence and abuse. On this site we offer information and advice to anyone experiencing domestic abuse.  We can also provide support services to anyone living in Leicester, Leicestershire or Rutland.  We are committed to raising awareness of domestic abuse, working towards its prevention and eradication, and assisting those affected by this crime to determine their own lives.
