General Details

Leeway is a domestic abuse and violence charity supporting adults, children and young people across Norfolk and Waveney.

The emotional and practical advice Leeway offers enables people to get the support and protection they need. We work in a non-judgemental way with people to empower them to make independent decisions about their life and their future.

We have a 24-hour helpline (0300 561 0077), provide refuge at one of our safe houses, and offer community support which ranges from regular one-to-one meetings with a member of our experienced outreach team to drop-in sessions and advice sessions.  

We offer support and information to any adult or child experiencing domestic abuse in Norfolk and Waveney.

If you are experiencing domestic abuse, or know someone who is, you can get free, confidential and non-judgement support by contacting us. 

If you are in immediate danger, always call 999.
