We provide a service for people affected by sexual and domestic violence across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. These services are for everyone, no matter what their age, ethnicity, sexuality, disability or religion. We would particularly like to engage with those over the age of 55, as we believe they may not be aware of the services that we can offer.
