Having somewhere safe to live is essential for everyone; and particularly so for victims of crime. Feeling unsafe at home can prevent some people from recovering from their experience, especially if there has been violence in the home.

If you have problems with getting repairs done, improvements to security put in place, or need re-housing, your local authority housing department or Shelter may be able to help. If you are a victim of domestic violence and need a safe place to go, Women's Aid may be able to help. Victim Support can act as advocates on behalf of people with housing difficulties, or can help you to find legal advice or refer you on.
