I’m a professional

This part of the website aims to support the very people who work and support victims, friends and families and perpetrators of domestic abuse and sexual violence.

If you would like to make a referral to a domestic abuse or sexual violence service, you can do so via the Staying Put website. Their online referral system for professionals covers all of the Survive and Thrive partners. 

“With our many partner organisations and colleagues, we continue to work tirelessly to support our citizens across the Bradford District. I am proud and amazed on a daily basis of our achievements both as a collective and as individuals too.

There have been significant changes in the past few years that have and will continue to impact on our professional lives and practice though. At a national level, we have of course the Domestic Abuse Act 2021; locally, we launched the Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence Strategy in 2021; we also have existing, new and creative initiatives and of course, we have all faced unprecedented challenges during the pandemic.  

In response to all of the above and more, we need an understanding of how this impacts on the work we do. And so, we’ve created this section of our new website. Our aim is to have one place packed with useful resources and information to help you as professionals do the job you so brilliantly do.”
