New Leaf Support is an established charity.  Charity Number 1150552

The charity has been set up to provide a ‘Safe House’ for women and their children fleeing domestic violence. Domestic violence not only relates to physical and mental abuse, it can also take the form of elderly abuse, trafficking, rape, stalking, parental abuse, child abuse, forced marriage and honour based violence.

The main objectives of the charity are as outlined below:

  • To provide a welcoming safe house so clients have space and time to work with other organisations to keep safe.
  • To provide support to help with practical issues.
  • Refer clients and children to partnership organisations depending on their needs.
  • Provide an alternative option to refuges.
  • Provide a higher level of safety for women and children.
  • To assist with finding permanent accommodation from local and national landlords and  also through the Swale Borough Councils Bidding scheme.  

This charity is non profit making. The purpose of fundraising is to cover the costs of the service and floating support. The cost to run the service for a year is just over £15,000.
