About us

Staying Put is a domestic abuse and sexual violence charity working across the Bradford area. We support women, men and children who are survivors of domestic abuse and sexual violence.

In 2019 we joined forces with charities Family Action and WomenCentre to create a one-stop-shop for survivors of domestic and sexual abuse. The new consortium, named Bradford Survive & Thrive, launched in October 2019, transforming services in Bradford and the surrounding area.

Together we provide early intervention and prevention, specialist work with children and young people, recovery and confidence building and packages of practical and emotional support, work with perpetrators, counselling to children and adults and access to high quality crisis support, accommodation and housing, also moving away from support model to advocacy model with our practitioners trained as either Independent Domestic Abuse Advocates (IDVAs) or Independent Sexual Abuse Advocates (ISVAs).
