The Stepping Out service aims to ensure women living in Central Bedfordshire experiencing domestic abuse (or having suffered historical abuse) have equal access to support that others in less rural areas have.
The Stepping Out service has specialist staff who help women to keep themselves safe, remove themselves from harmful situations and understand their legal rights. We offer 1-1 support, advice and advocacy for victims of domestic abuse.
We offer support to cope and recover from emotional trauma, build confidence and enable women to move forward positively with their lives.
Our team is able to offer support through scheduled and unscheduled appointments delivered in various community settings.
We work closely with Central Beds Council and our team are co-located within the MASH team where we are able to take on cases that do not meet the social care threshold but where women may need help to disclose and escape abusive relationships.
We also take self-referrals so if you would like to attend one of the community-based surgeries or speak to one of our team please give us a call on 01582 457114.
