The Portal provides a single point of contact for victims and survivors of domestic or sexual abuse and violence who are 16+ and living in, working in or visiting Brighton & Hove or East Sussex. The Portal can also give advice and support to friends, family and professionals.
Help and support available depends on levels of risk, identified support needs and the type of support requested, as well as service user eligibility.
If a service user is eligible – and accepts the service – they will be allocated to the appropriate team and a Safety and Support Plan will be developed.
If a service user is not eligible they will be given advice on other local support.
How to refer
Please follow the link for a referral form for the Portal. Where relevant, attach a completed Domestic Abuse Stalking and Harassment Risk Identification Checklist (DASH RIC). Please follow the link for a DASH RIC form.
Please note: If a referral form is missing key information you will be asked for more information and The Portal may not be able to accept the referral until this information has been provided.
You must ensure that the service user is aware – and has given their consent – to the referral.
