2001 – A successful bid of £445,000 was accepted by the Home Office Crime Reduction Programme to fund the pilot Staying Put project until March 2002.
This initially provided a district-wide helpline and direct support work to women experiencing domestic abuse who wished to remain in their own homes.
2008 – We extend our service to male victims via our IDVA service.
2017 – Staying Put became a parent charity to Domestic Violence Services.
2020 – After three successful years, in October 2020 the boards of DVS and Staying Put agreed to merge.
