Action Domestic Abuse Service (ADAS) – Sheffield

What we do


If you are experiencing domestic abuse or the effects of abuse you can call the Helpline where they can listen to you, help you make sense of your situation and put you in touch with the right service. Or you can email them and let them know how and when it’s safe to get in touch with you. The Helpline is currently open 8am-6pm Monday-Friday except Bank Holidays.

The helpline is also the point of contact for professionals to contact the specialist team for advice and support on cases they may need support on or for more advice and guidance on this area of support.

We want to expand our opening hours with an ambition to deliver a 24/7 helpline service, to do this we need volunteers to help run the line. If you are interested in supporting our helpline team or any of our domestic abuse projects and would like to volunteer for us please contact our volunteer coordinator Scott on 01709 821251 or e-mail volunteer@actionorg.uk for more details.


This citywide outreach service works with men and women who are experiencing domestic abuse, when they are still in an abusive relationship, attempting to leave or have already left. We provides a flexible, professional and responsive support service in a range of community settings.
