The services continue the project we delivered in partnership with Europia, a charity based in Manchester.

We are concerned that Polish people face many barriers in accessing specialist services – language barrier, fear from statutory agencies, lack of knowledge of the system, isolation and financial difficulties. Our project was a response to the needs of the Polish victims/survivors of domestic abuse in Manchester.

If you would like to refer a Polish client to this service, please complete our referral form and send it to us following instructions on the form.
We also accept self-referrals.
