Domestic Abuse 'One Stop Shops'

What we do

Domestic Abuse One Stop Shops are a drop-in service for both women and men - or in fact anyone affected in any way by domestic abuse who feels that he or she could benefit from support, help or advice. It is a free and confidential service and no appointment is necessary.  One Stop Shops are held on a Tuesday in Dartford, Maidstone, Medway, Sevenoaks, on a Wednesday in Tonbridge and Gravesend on a Thursday. 


You can get advice from a number of agencies under one roof, such as:

• a local Housing representative from your Council

• a Choices advisor or another specialist domestic abuse advisor

• a representative from the Citizens Advice Bureau

• a Solicitor

Each area has different representation
