Liverpool Domestic Abuse Service (LDAS) was founded in 2004 by CEO Paula Nolan in response to the growing number of women and girls who accessed the Health Energy Advice Team (HEAT) who identified domestic abuse as a factor in their support need.
Paula quickly identified a service which specialised in the support of women and girls whose lives were being impacted by domestic abuse. This was desperately needed in the Kensington area of Liverpool. LDAS was developed to provide advice, support, advocacy, therapeutic and practical help to women and girls. By presenting options and choices to victims and survivors of domestic abuse we can support them to a life free from abuse.
