About

Our Community Drop-In gives you the opportunity to talk directly with the Somerset Domestic Abuse Service. Upon arrival, you will be greeted by a member of staff who can support and guide you.

The sessions are entirely led by what that person needs, it could be that the individual may just want some phone numbers, but primarily it’s going to be for those who wish to start a conversation

For example:

This is what is happening to me, what can/should I do?

Help and support at our central hub
