Addtional Information

Stalking/harassment is addressed in the context of domestic abuse. The DAAS Service takes referrals for both male and female victims and operates seven days a week. All referrals will be responded to within 24-48 hours. DAAS is part of the Pathway Project so if a victim is assessed as not at high risk they can be referred on to more appropriate services, such as Children 1st Domestic Abuse Community Service for long term support.
