Preston Sanctuary Service

The Preston Sanctuary Scheme aims to make it possible for victims of Domestic

Violence, women, men and their children, to remain in their own homes and feel safe and secure.

Many victims of Domestic Violence have to leave their own homes as a result of the Domestic Violence and the threat of repeat incidents.

The Sanctuary Service offers an alternative option to victims of Domestic Violence who would otherwise have to leave behind their home, family, friends and all their belongings

It is a partnership scheme between Preston Domestic Violence Services and

Preston City Council.

To be eligible for the scheme you must:

  • no longer be in the domestic violence relationship but are still receiving abuse and threats at the property live within Preston city council boundaries
  • Have right to occupy your property, be this your own property or rented accommodation.
  • Permission from landlords must be sought for work to go ahead.

A security survey is carried out on each property to ensure the extra security measures are suitable. These may include making improvements to external doors, lock changes, window alarms etc.

These measures are intended to improve security and keep you safe until the police arrive.

For further information or to access the service please contact our helpline on – 01772 201601 or email us at sanctuary@pdvs.org.uk
