Established in 1974, Leeway is an independent charity providing support to adults, young people and children who are experiencing domestic abuse in Norfolk and Waveney. We are founding members of WAFE (Women’s Aid Federation England) and every year provide specialist support to over 8,000 adults, children and young people.

Our free, safe and confidential service is designed to empower those who are experiencing domestic abuse and give them the confidence needed in order to make independent choices about their life. To do this we provide a range of one-on-one and community based services not only for the adults and children of Norfolk, but also those from other areas of the country who require a place of safety.
