Description

Through a range of trauma-informed services, such as Outreach (1:1), Group-based programmes and a civil court service, SATEDA provide direct access to support, advocacy and advice for women and children who’ve experienced or are experiencing domestic abuse. We strive to offer a journey of support which increases choices for women – enabling them to take back control, break free and live a life without fear. We’re the only domestic abuse service in Kent working solely with women and we know domestic abuse isn’t linear so our support services aren't either. It’s tailored to the individual needs. The client is in control of the journey and we’ll hold their hand through it.
