Unfortunately due to Coronavirus, our face to face support with women on The Recovery Toolkit remains unavailable. We know this will be difficult for some survivors, but if you need support please call our Emotional Support Line where trained staff will be able to support you.
The Recovery Toolkit is a 12 week course which aims to provide you with all the knowledge you need to recover from the effects of living with domestic abuse.
The course is designed for women who have left an abusive partner. Our definition of women-only includes trans women and non-binary people who identify women’s services as being right for them.
The course will cover:
- How your thoughts affect the way you feel
- How to increase confidence and self-esteem
- Understanding power and control in an abusive relationship
- Boundaries and trust: protect ourselves and those we love
Referrals can be made by telephone or email directly to RSACC.
You are not alone
We are here to help you and, no matter how hard it may seem, we will get there together.
My time here has been so helpful to me. Having time to step back and look at some of the difficult things that have happened in my life and recognise I have strength has been so precious to me. I am so thankful for being able to access such an amazing safe haven! You have given me the opportunity to step back and breathe again. I feel like a stronger person, able to face the world and live again. I am empowered!
Just a quick note to say thank you for listening to me and helping me to rebuild my life. I feel happy and like I am ready to live again. Life is good. I never thought I would feel this good again. Talking has helped me through the darkness and to clear out the weeds in my life. Now my life looks sunnier and I have much to look forward to. I also have real flowers in my garden now. So it shows things can change.
It’s made me a happier, stronger, more confident, positive person!
I am no longer hiding from life and I have learned to say yes and no. I now do things for me!
