Jersey Women's Refuge
Jersey Women’s Refuge helps any woman who has been affected by domestic abuse. Domestic abuse is any form of physical, emotional, financial or sexual abuse which is used to gain power and control over another person in an intimate relationship.
The Women’s Refuge have both outreach workers and a safe house.
The outreach workers work in the community and you can meet with them to get support regarding the domestic abuse. They will never force you to do anything if you're not ready, instead they focus on empowering you to recognise that you can move on and they will support you if you choose to stay in the relationship or if you choose to leave.
Should you choose to leave, they have a safe house where you can go and stay and begin to move on with your life.

The Psychology Service offer talking and listening based therapies to help deal with a range of emotional difficulties, including depression, stress and anxiety. Sometimes, the therapy can include physical activity too.
The service is accessed by referral only, usually from your GP, however some other agencies, e.g. Victim Support, can offer a referral too. There is an approximately 8 week waiting list for an appointment at the service, but you can receive support from the Women’s Refuge or Victim Support as well as having a referral to psychology.
Your GP can provide a wealth of support to you, not just by offering appropriate medication and treating physical injuries but by listening to you too. They are also likely to be aware of many of the services mentioned here and can make a referral to them if you wish.
