Vesta – Specialist Family Support CIC in partnership with Europia offer specialist support to Polish victims/survivors of domestic abuse in Manchester to ensure that they are safe in their homes. It is offered to men and women. Our services are free of charge and available for the Polish community in Manchester City.

The aim is to support Polish people who experience domestic abuse and their safe accommodation needs.  We are concerned that Polish people, despite the fact that they constitute one of the largest minority groups in Manchester, are overlooked by services and their needs are not sufficiently met. They face a lot of barriers in accessing specialist services – language barrier, fear from statutory agencies, lack of knowledge of the system, isolation and financial difficulties.

Who is this service for? The project aims to offer Specialist Support for Polish victims and survivors of domestic abuse in Manchester. The support is for both men and women. 

How much does this cost? This is a free service. The project is funded by Manchester City Council.

What support can you get? The following services are offered to clients living in Manchester: Information, advice and support in accessing local domestic abuse services, welfare & housing advice and support, face-to-face consultations, online support group for women, counselling, emergency funding for accommodation related needs
