Support for Survivors

Are you experiencing domestic abuse? Are you unsure or confused about whether what's happening is abuse or not?

You don't need to struggle alone. Help is on hand.

Call the National Domestic Abuse Helpline on 0808 2000 247. The helpline is open 24/7, 365 days a year and is totally free to call.

If it's an emergency, call 999.

At Restored, we aren't a helpline or an emergency service, but we are here to walk alongside you as you access the support that you need. We've got over 10 years of experience in supporting female Christian survivors of domestic abuse through our online Survivors' Network, and our Survivor's Handbook is a comprehensive resource giving information and advice on leaving an abuser, recovering from domestic abuse, as well as exploring some faith-specific questions.

If you're a survivor of domestic abuse, we're here for you. If you identify as a Christian, you might have particular questions or challenges related to faith and domestic abuse; some of the most common ones are answered in our Survivor's Handbook, which you can order for free here. Anyone is welcome to join our Survivors' Network and receive support through regular emails, small groups and chances to connect with other survivors.
