Splitz Support Service

Splitz supports women, children and young people who have experienced the trauma of domestic abuse throughout the county areas of Wiltshire, Devon and Gloucestershire.

Founded 1989

  • Mission statement

    Splitz is a leading provider of domestic abuse support services in Wiltshire, Devon and Gloucestershire. Our vision is for a society where people have the right to be respected, to enjoy a happy and healthy life free from fear, and to achieve and sustain independence. What distinguishes our work is a commitment to quality and process; we are an organisation which has coordinated community response to the trauma of domestic abuse at its core; working holistically and effectively in partnership with Social Services, Police and other agencies (incl. Voluntary Community Sector, faith organisations and BME groups), but with a human face. We never forget that the people we work with are often living in situations of entrenched social, emotional and financial crisis. We deliver our support by:
    - one to one support & workshops for victims of domestic abuse;
    - an accredited programme for male perpetrators of domestic abuse to change their behaviour;
    - support services for young people who have witnessed domestic abuse;
    - a buddy scheme offering mentoring and befriending to those who require longer term emotional support;
    - healthy and respectful courses for teens and young adults in schools and colleges

    In 2013/14, Splitz received 3728 adult referrals and 257 direct referrals involving young people

  • Aims

    Splitz Support Service aims to:

    • What we have learnt over 26 years is that a ‘sticking plaster’ approach, whilst useful for providing the semblance of activity and ‘box-ticking’, provides at best only a temporary short-term solution. Having dealt with the immediate concerns (particularly around issues of safety) our approach is to ensure that we pick up on the other issues; social, financial, emotional, which can exclude, isolate, and prevent the service user from achieving and sustaining independence – empowering women and girls to take control of their lives and their futures.
