Supporting victims and survivors of domestic abuse, sexual violence and stalking. Aurora provides a range of innovative services for survivors of domestic and sexual violence and stalking, including help finding housing, obtaining restraining orders and accompanying victims to court. Its services include one to one work, advocacy, group support, attending domestic violence incidents with the police and training and education programmes. It also works with the Armed Forces to raise awareness and support victims.
Aurora New Dawn is a creative charity and should be commended for responding to gaps in services, such as poor take up of domestic violence support in the Armed Forces and a lack of awareness and understanding amongst frontline professionals of how to support victims of stalking. Through their impressive partnership work with the local police in Hampshire, their innovative DVA Police Car service enables victims to feel better supported. Demand for their services remains high, and the charity’s influence and reach continues to grow.
