Our refuge accommodation is scattered throughout Aberdeen. We have a choice of one, two and three bedroom properties. The refuges are fully furnished, equipped to a high standard and inspected on a regular basis. We ensure a high standard of health and safety and the majority of our accommodation is monitored externally by CCTV.
Before refuge is offered, a Support Worker will undertake a risk assessment with you, to ensure we can consider a number of factors. The risk assessment has been developed from extensive research into the risk factors associated with certain indicators in domestic abuse situations.
Factors we consider are:
- Are the areas we have available safe for you?
- Does the perpetrator or his family live or frequent nearby?
- Do you or your children present any issues which may impact on other residents?
- Are there any other known risk factors which may impact on your support?
