Gloucestershire Domestic Abuse Support Service
GDASS can intervene at the earliest opportunity to prevent a situation of domestic abuse from escalating. They provide 'places of safety' in a crisis where necessary, and support families back into communities as soon as possible following a crisis. GDASS links families to other local services, contributes to safeguarding children by supporting stability in families, and offers specialist advice to other professionals.
GDASS helpline: 0845 602 9035.
