DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

BHI is committed to empowering marginalized and disadvantaged communities in decision making about their health and well-being. BHI will develop information and practical support to keep those affected by domestic abuse up to date with information about support services, to assist them to make positive lifestyle changes. BHI aims to bring a holistic approach to all our services which are culturally competent.

After completing our training with Leeds City Council Domestic Violence Team Community Safety, BHI has gained the first level quality mark and will continue to ensure that we work towards becoming a centre of excellence, providing information and support to meet the needs of all those who will access the service.   

For support and further information please contact us at BHI on 0113 3070300.
