"I was believed! This has given me great confidence!"

LWA provides information and advice, as well as practical and emotional support, to anyone experiencing domestic abuse in Leicester City, Charnwood, North West Leicestershire and Rutland.  Outside of this area please use the WAFE website to find your local service.

We have a number of services available which are here to help people affected by domestic abuse to safely escape and start a new life.


Our main Services


Outreach Services

The Outreach Service provides help and advice over the phone and in person in a variety of ways, including: emotional and practical support, security measures, support with the legal system and resettlement.



The IDVA service provide support to high risk victims of abuse in Rutland.


Leicester City Family Service

We provide a range of services for 0 to 19 year olds and their families living in Leicester City.  We are also working in partnership with Safe and the Jenkins Centre, who provide adult services and support for those who are using violence in their relationships.


Group Support Programmes

We run two programmes for victims of domestic abuse - The Freedom Programme and The Recovery Toolkit.  These programmes help victims of abuse to understand what has happened to them, why it has happened and to take steps to a more postive future.



We can take and store photographic evidence of any injuries sustained which can then be used as evidence in imminent or future court cases.
