Wirral Family Safety Unit – Wirral Borough Council

Wirral Family Safety Unit - Wirral Borough Council

Wirral Family Safety Unit (FSU) is a team of Independent Domestic Violence Advocates (IDVA’s). The FSU provides independent and impartial advice to any high risk victim / survivor of domestic abuse.


We provide support to victims and their families who are experiencing domestic abuse. We also provide support for people experiencing or at risk from harmful practices; honour-based abuse and forced marriage.


If an IDVA is unable to advise or support you, they will identify someone who can. You can get support for your children and the impact your relationship has had on them. They will assess your risk and together agree a plan to provide you with support and safety to reduce the risk to you and your children.


They can support you with ending an abusive or dangerous relationship as safely as possible. They can provide information about housing and how you will manage financially. Your IDVA can assist with any civil action such as going to court for a non-molestation order or injunction to keep you and your family safe.


You will be listened to. You will be believed.
