Domestic Violence and Abuse

Key Contact Details

The Devon Sanctuary Scheme is not an immediate response to the problem, but is a long-term solution to improve a victim's quality of life.  The scheme is available to all victims living in Devon who may become homeless due to domestic violence and abuse, hate crime, racial harassment or other violence.
