History

 

History

2001 – A successful bid of £445,000 was accepted by the Home Office Crime Reduction Programme to fund the pilot Staying Put project until March 2002.

This initially provided a district-wide helpline and direct support work to women experiencing domestic abuse who wished to remain in their own homes.

2008 – We extend our service to male victims via our IDVA service.

2017 – Staying Put became a parent charity to Domestic Violence Services. 

2018 – We developed Affordable Legal Services @ Staying Put, which is authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority and offers legal services to all victims and survivors of domestic abuse across West Yorkshire who are not eligible for legal aid.

2019 – Staying Put became part of the Bradford Survive & Thrive Consortium together with WomenCentre & Family Action, with a One Front Door free helpline.

2020 – After three successful years, in October 2020 the boards of DVS and Staying Put agreed to merge.
