Supported Housing

We offer supported housing to help single women recover from the trauma of domestic abuse and rebuild a life free from violence and fear. EVA has a number of good quality safe houses in Redcar & Cleveland including 1 award winning house especially for women aged over 45. Several of our Safe Houses have access for women with disabilities.

Our Safe Houses have warm, comfortable individual bedrooms with shared well appointed bathrooms, laundry, cosy lounge area and fully equipped kitchen facilities.  (Sample images below).

We will also provide emotional and practical support and ensure that every woman we support has an up-to-date risk assessment and support plan tailored to their needs for however long it is needed.

Our properties consist of

  • Shared safe houses for women of all ages

  • A shared safe house specifically for women aged 45+ (the first, and only one, of its kind in the UK)

  • Disabled facilities in one of the houses

  • A shared house for women with more complex mental health needs 


We pride ourselves on making these houses have a “home from home” feel, to make women feel as comfortable as possible.


All women are assigned their own keyworker who will carry out an Individual Risk Assessment and safety plans, which are updated on a regular basis. The keyworker will also empower women to achieve their own individual personal goals.  They will also receive support with

  • Budgeting

  • Cooking

  • Household tasks
