Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to move quickly and if you are experiencing domestic abuse in lockdown, you are not alone. We want to share with you the decisions Hestia are making to continue providing services in Newham which optimise the safety and health of staff and our service users.

The Newham Domestic and Sexual Violence Service is operating via remote telephone support at this time, however we continue to provide face to face outreach support via our Exiting Sex Work provision.
