Amber, is a long established organisation working to empower women and children of all cultures and backgrounds to live abuse-free lives. As a specialist domestic abuse service our professional team works alongside others to safeguard women and children against domestic abuse, including coercive control. We provide safe, supportive, client centred services, from early intervention to recovery, both in the community and at the refuge.
Our vision is of a society where domestic abuse is recognised as a serious crime and which recognises the consequences of domestic abuse for those affected; a society where the root causes of domestic abuse i.e. the unequal power relations between men and women, are addressed and which holds the perpetrators responsible for the crime, while supporting men who want to change; a society where families are nurtured, where women and children are living in an inclusive and safe society, and where unequal power relations between men and women are eliminated.
The set of Principles of practice which will guide the organisation in carrying out its mission statement are:
