Domestic Abuse Information, Support & Empowerment Project (DAISE Plus)
The Domestic Abuse Information, Support & Empowerment Project (DAISE Plus) provides one to one support to women who are experiencing or have experienced domestic abuse. Support is offered on either an appointment or drop-in basis.
Our DAISE Plus Support Workers can give a range of advice and support at a pace suited to you in a pressure-free, non-judgemental environment. Our support workers are here to listen to you when you are ready to talk and can offer you practical and emotional support, they can also discuss options that may help improve your situation. Our Support Workers will work with you to create a safety plan and to map positive steps forward from your current situation.
Our Support Workers can provide practical support and information and make referrals to other agencies on issues such as:
- Legal procedures
- Needs of Children
Our DAISE Plus project also offers a range of courses which are aimed to help improve women’s self-esteem, help them to recognise traits of domestic abuse and to instil them with practical coping mechanisms. Our courses also enable women to meet other women in similar circumstances and help women to recover from trauma with peer support.
The DAISE Plus project takes a fully rounded holistic approach to support, we offer complementary therapies, homoeopathy and counselling services to our service users.
Appointments and Drop-in
You can see a member of our DAISE Plus team by attending one of our appointments or drop-in sessions.

Appointments can take place at our Bond St office, Swansea Domestic One Shop or in one of our pop up community venues which are located in Bon-y-maen, Clase, Gorseinon, Mayhill and Penlan. When booking an appointment please let us know which venue is best for you.
In cases where people are unable to make it to our office or community pop up venues, we can offer phone and home appointments. Please call us to discuss booking one of these appointments.
We are passionate about ensuring that our services are accessible and try to remove barriers to entry where possible. We can offer:

We know that sometimes people can’t wait for appointments or need to see us urgently, this is why we offer drop-in sessions. Drop-in sessions last up to 30 minutes and no booking is necessary. Due to demand, drop-in sessions are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. Flow up appointments can be booked after your drop-in session.
