Service Description

Oxfordshire Domestic Abuse Service has been providing support for victims of domestic abuse for over 10 years in Oxfordshire. They are committed to empowering females and males in an abusive relationship, irrespective of sexuality or ethnicity, to make their own choices. The priority is to help victims and their children feel safe whether or not they choose to leave the relationship.
