Mission Statement

Behind Closed Doors offers emotional and practical support to women, who live or work in Leeds, who are experiencing or have experienced domestic abuse. In particular, we provide support to women living in the remote, rural, outlying areas.

The organisation was established in 1997. We are a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee.
Organisational aims:
• To support women and children living within the communities of Leeds, who are affected by domestic abuse.
• To promote inter-agency co-operation and joint action to raise awareness of the issues of domestic abuse against women.
• To increase local awareness of the community and each individual’s responsibility to challenge the acceptance of domestic abuse and community collusion that enables the abuse to continue and builds barriers to women seeking help.
• To increase awareness of available support and information in order to make women experiencing abuse safer and provide them with real choices.
• To support women in the recovery process so that they can move on with their lives.
