Sanctuary scheme - domestic abuse

The sanctuary scheme is a range of practical support options to support you to remain in your own home, including -

  • a panic alarm in your home - the panic alarm, called Lifeline, is linked to Kingston Care Lifeline services
  • a mobile phone or new sim card - to replace an old phone or sim card
  • home safety measures installed by Probe - for example fitted window locks, increased security for doors, spy hole or intercom
  • a personal alarm - for when you leave your home to use in the community

The sanctuary scheme is a free service. To access this support speak to your support worker or contact the domestic abuse partnership (DAP). They will complete a safety plan with you, discuss the range of measures available to you and what is appropriate for your situation and need. A safety plan will also be created with you.
