At SATEDA, our vision is to end domestic abuse and our mission is to empower all women, including trans women, to end the cycle of domestic abuse, reconnect with their own voices and rebuild their lives free from fear, through education, support and advocacy.
As a specialist domestic abuse charity we provide a unique journey of support to women and children who are experiencing, have experienced or are at risk of experiencing domestic abuse, while campaigning for systemic change around gender-based violence.
"I truly didn’t know what to expect as I hadn’t heard of SATEDA, but I wouldn’t have got through this without them. It took me a while but I now realise I am important too and it’s ok to put myself first. Their support has benefited my life in every possible way."
Not sure if what you’re experiencing is domestic abuse?
Telling the difference between healthy arguments and disagreements in a relationship, and unhealthy, hurtful and controlling patterns of behaviour, isn’t always easy.
But you always need to trust your gut. If something doesn’t feel right in your relationship, it probably isn’t.
“With support from SATEDA I changed my life. It took a while for me to be brave enough to leave... I thought staying for the children was the best thing to do, that they didn't know what was happening. I didn't realise just how much they knew."

Domestic abuse is everybody’s business
We all have a role to play in challenging the gender inequalities which mean women and children disproportionately experience violence every day.
It requires a collaborative effort which needs to be tackled at all levels of society – so whatever it is you do, let’s work together.
