Domestic abuse support in Manchester
Specialist support for Polish men and women
The project is delivered as a partnership between Vesta – Specialist Family Support CIC and Europia, a charity based in Manchester offering practical community and well-being projects as well as providing free welfare advice, legal surgery, and immigration advice.
The aim is to support Polish people who experience domestic abuse and their safe accommodation needs.
We are concerned that Polish people, despite the fact that they constitute one of the largest minority groups in Manchester, are overlooked by services and their needs are not sufficiently met. They face a lot of barriers in accessing specialist services – language barrier, fear from statutory agencies, lack of knowledge of the system, isolation and financial difficulties.
Who is this service for?
The project aims to offer Specialist Support for Polish victims and survivors of domestic abuse in Manchester. The support is for both men and women.
How much does this cost?
This is a free service. The project is funded by Manchester City Council.

Emergency funding for accommodation related needs
