Sunflower weekly drop-in sessions

Residents affected by domestic abuse can now access a greater range of advice, information and support at weekly Sunflower drop-in sessions.


Independent charity, Safer Places, will be attending the sessions organised by the Welwyn Hatfield Community Safety Partnership, to support anyone in the borough affected by domestic abuse, whether directly or to a friend or relative.



The services provided include information on housing options, legal advice and guidance on potential enforcement action against the abuser. The centre always welcomes people who just wish to talk through their options or get more information about other agencies that may be able to offer help and support.


Safer Places is an independent charity which provides a broad range of services to men, women and children affected by all forms of domestic abuse - including refuge accommodation, counselling and specialist support groups.


The sessions take place every Tuesday, from 9.15-11am at Gracemead House, Woods Avenue, Hatfield.


Sian Chambers, Head of Community and Housing Strategy at Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council, said:

The Sunflower drop-in provides an important range of services for men and woman across Welwyn Hatfield, and it's fantastic news that Safer Places will be attending the sessions, helping to give even more expert advice, information and support to some of our most vulnerable residents.


Anyone who comes to a session can rest assured that all of the services are free and confidential, including the domestic abuse helpline, which is free to call and not listed on phone bills.
