Our history

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. 

2017 – 2021 – Collaborative working in South Yorkshire with IDAS and Remedi.

2019 – 2021 Affordable Legal Services @ Staying Put across West Yorkshire.

2019 – Staying Put became part of the Bradford Survive & Thrive Consortium together with WomenCentre & Family Action, with a One Front Door free helpline.

2020 – After three successful years, in October 2020 the boards of DVS and Staying Put agreed to merge.
