FearlessFearless offers a new approach to supporting the hidden survivors of domestic abuse in Scotland. Sacro, in partnership with statutory agencies, housing providers and three specialist third sector organisations - Shakti Women’s Aid, Respect and LGBT Youth, will reach out to those people who are less inclined to access domestic abuse services. This will include survivors from the black and ethnic minority community, members of the LGBT community and male survivors. Any individual over 16 years old can access the service.   The service will offer practical support for survivors to access a range of supports including housing, health services and will support appropriate inclusion with their community. A dedicated case worker will be allocated to each individual referred to the service and the service will strive to offer informed choices to each person. All support will be individually tailored to suit the client’s needs.  Referrals are also accepted from professional agencies working with survivors.  Fearless workers offer you mentoring and support in areas such as healthcare, housing, emotional support, practical support, safety planning, addictions and assistance to access appropriate benefits.  A dedicated case worker is assigned to work with you and all support is individually tailored to suit your personal needs.  Tel 0131 624 7266, Email fearlessinfo@sacro.org.uk
