South Essex Domestic Abuse Hubs

A South Essex Domestic Abuse Hubs service operates across South Essex, including Thurrock, and provides help, advice and assistance to people that are suffering from domestic abuse.

The hubs enable those fleeing or requiring advice regarding domestic abuse to be seen. Their issues are often dealt with in a single day without the need for repeat signposting to other services.

Staff from a number of services including housing, Citizen’s Advice, Changing Pathways, Essex Police and a domestic abuse co-ordinator, will work collaboratively tackling the issues that people face.

The Thurrock hub takes place every Friday. For details about times and locations for the hub, contact Changing Pathways on 01268 729707.
