What to expect

No matter how you first get in touch with us, you will first have a chat with one of SATEDA’s experienced team members.

You will be asked to share your story with one of our team, who will also do a risk assessment with you to help decide what support you need.

We promise to believe you, to never judge you and to keep things confidential.

Depending on your situation and what you would like to do, we will offer you access to the various types of support that SATEDA provides, as well as sign posting or referring to other agencies that could help you.

We will also create a safety plan for you to help you stay safe.

Asking for help is an incredibly brave thing to do and it’s the first step on your journey towards freedom.

SATEDA will commit to being with you on the rest of your journey for as long as you need us to be, but we will never force you to continue or make you accept our help and support.
