Reclaim – Freedom From Domestic Abuse

Reclaim is a ‘By and For’ service run by survivors of domestic abuse and people with disabilities or who suffer from chronic pain. 
We provide emotional and psychological support through counselling to individuals who have experienced domestic abuse through a specialist trauma recovery pathway.  
The counsellors at Reclaim have expertise in dealing with the unique needs of individuals who have experienced domestic abuse. We help survivors cope with the trauma of abuse, process their experiences, and develop healthy coping mechanisms.  

We offer ten free counselling sessions to adults, children and young people (11 – 17).

Since moving to VANS in 2019, the Reclaim project has become firmly embedded in the charity, with the team of coordinators and self-employed counsellors becoming part of the team.

With increased demand for support specifically for survivors of Domestic Abuse, VANS is working with other local providers to identify gaps in the current offer and additional funding to put in place support where required in North Somerset.

For people who are living with their abuser, Next Link North Somerset may be able to offer you support:
