Service description:
Eligibility: The scheme is available to all victims of domestic abuse living in Northamptonshire, irrespective of gender, sexual orientation or family circumstances.
Provision Details:
Many people who experience domestic abuse do not wish to move home as they may live near to their children’s schools, friends, family or other support networks.
The Northampton Sanctuary Scheme helps victims of domestic abuse who wish to stay in their homes by improving security with professionally installed security measures. This may include new locks, stronger doors, grilles and communications systems.
Every person’s situation is different, so every “sanctuary” is different, with each one tailored to meet the needs of the individual person and property.
Referral Process:
Referrals to the scheme can come from Northampton Borough & County Council, Northamptonshire Police, The Sunflower Centre, Northampton Women’s Aid, Nene Valley Christian Centre, the Northampton Bangladeshi Association and Victim Support.
Duration:
Once it has been established that the client is happy to remain in their home if it can be made safer, an inspection of the property is made and the work needed to make the property as secure as possible is identified.
Once this work has been agreed with the client and, if required, the landlord, the work to install the security measures will be carried out. A final inspection will then be made to make sure the work is up to standard and complies with health and safety regulations.
