Compassion is a small charity that has worked for 14 years to promote awareness and understanding about all aspects of domestic violence and abuse nationally and locally in the Babergh district of Suffolk. Founded in 2001. As an independent, multi-agency forum we worked, alongside other forums, to raise awareness of domestic violence and abuse related issues.
It has always been important, to us, to develop local resources for those who have or are currently experiencing domestic abuse or violence - as well as influencing policy and agency response within our local area.
With these aims in mind, we bring new support initiatives through our local services and work with the County Domestic Abuse Forum, informing policy decisions related to domestic abuse within Suffolk.
Compassion owes everything to the work of its volunteers who have given their time freely, to Chair the Forum meetings, deliver programmes and run the support services.
This commitment has driven Compassion forward and earned us high regard from other professionals within the field of domestic abuse services.
We currently provide the following programmes and services
FREEDOM PROGRAMME - SUPPORT GROUPS - DOMESTIC ABUSE BEFRIEDNING - WHO'S IN CHARGE - ESCAPE THE TRAP
