Domestic abuse

You may be being abused or hurt by your partner, your in-laws or parents if you live with them, or someone else. We can help.

What is the Salford Sanctuary Scheme?

The Salford Sanctuary Scheme is a project for people who are experiencing, or have experienced, domestic abuse and are likely to become homeless because of it.

The scheme helps people to stay in their home and feel safer by adding security measures to their property.

The security measures the scheme can add to your home including:

  • locks on windows and doors
  • window grilles
  • gates
  • anti-arson letterboxes
  • panic alarms

How can I contact you?

The service operates on a ‘drop in' basis so you don't need to make an appointment at first.

If you wish to speak to a housing options advisor before you visit the office, you can contact us online. The advice line opening times are:

  • 8.30am to 12pm and 1pm to 4.30pm on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
  • 10am to 12pm and 1pm to 4.30pm on Tuesday

Do I need to bring anything with me?

You will be asked to provide identification, so don't forget to bring it along. We can accept the following as proof:

  • a valid passport
  • a driving licence
  • a medical card
  • a letter from your GP

Where can I get further help?

You'll find further information on our community safety pages.

You can also contact Salford Housing Options Point.
