Domestic Abuse Safety Unit (DASU) provides professional coordinated interventions to people experiencing domestic abuse across Flintshire and Denbighshire to maximise their safety, and the safety of their families. DASU has 30 years experience of delivering specialised and professional services that include crisis intervention, advocacy, refuge, training, support during court cases, outreach support and development to offer people who have experienced domestic abuse optimal safety, legal support and positive life choices in their own communities. DASU works with both men and women, the only charity in North East Wales which offers a holistic and innovative response to domestic abuse

The aims of DASU are to:

  • Offer 24 hour direct access to refuge accomodation 
  • Offer information, support and practical help to any victim/survivor of domestic abuse
  • Publicise the service to ensure that everyone who may need our service is aware of the services we provide and how to contact us
  • Recognise the various needs of any dependent children involved and to ensure that these needs are catered for by DASU or by referral to another agency
  • Encourage survivors to make their own decisions and to determine their own futures
  • Educate and inform the public, the media and agencies of the difficulties faced by people who experience domestic abuse

In addition to the wide ranging practical support, DASU works with survivors to increase their confidence and self- esteem and to enable them to take control of their lives. This may take the form of individual counselling, group work and training.  We also facilitate a monthly support group to help increase social networks and to decrease isolation.
