16th June 2020

Sutton Safeguarding Adults Board news item

 

In light of the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak and in response to national Public Health advice, changes to out domestic abuse services have been made.

The Sutton Domestic Abuse One Stop Shop which usually runs on a Wednesday morning as a drop-in session remains closed until further notice.

However, from 1 July 2020 we are able to offer face-to-face appointments at Sutton Baptist Church on Wednesday mornings for those who want to talk to a specialist domestic abuse adviser (IDVA). Our independent domestic abuse advisers are available to meet with you face-to-face to discuss your situation and provide support and guidance to help you.

To arrange an appointment please contact Transform on 020 8092 7569 (Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm) or email transformsutton@cranstoun.org.uk. Appointments will be conducted with Covid-19 safety measures in place, i.e. observing social distancing; ensuring that hand washing facilities are available etc.

If you or anyone you know is experiencing domestic abuse, support is available - contact Transform on 020 8092 7569 (Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm) or email transformsutton@cranstoun.org.uk.

In an emergency, always dial 999.

Updates on any changes to domestic abuse services will be published on the London Borough of Sutton, Not Alone in Sutton, and Transform Sutton websites on an ongoing basis.

Sutton Council are providing the latest information and advice on the current Covid-19 (Coronavirus) situation on their website.
