Clarion’s Domestic Abuse service offers support to help people experiencing domestic abuse stay safe. We work with you to provide and encourage choice and independence to help you build the life you want to lead free from abuse.
For women who are at risk and not able to remain living at home our high quality refuges offer secure accommodation for up to 80 women and their children across Kent and Medway.
Our community outreach provides free and confidential advice, over the phone, in a mutually agreed safe public place or if the situation is assessed as safe then they can visit at home. Support is available to men, women and transgender people over the age of 16 affected by domestic abuse. This can include forced marriage, so called ‘honour based violence’ or stalking and harassment.
