Childcare

A live-in Au Pair, can cost approximately £75 a week in addition to providing free lodging and food.

In England, children between 2 years old and 4 years old may be eligible to between 15 and 30 hours free childcare, subject to eligibility criteria.

Domestic Abuse Resources

Below are some helpful resources in England that provide support to those going through domestic abuse:

The National Domestic Violence Helpline run in partnership between Women’s Aid and Refuge, can help with advice for those going through various types of abuse.

Southall Black Sisters is a not-for-profit organisation set up in 1979 to meet the needs of black and minority ethnic women. They provide a free service for women who have experienced gender-based violence.

Victim Support is dedicated to supporting both male and female victims of crime and traumatic incidents in England and Wales.

Men’s Aid provides practical advice and support to men who have been abused.

Men’s Advice Line is a confidential help and support line for male victims of domestic violence.

Under homeless legislation in England and Wales, local authorities have a legal duty to provide emergency accommodation to those going through domestic abuse.

Local authorities have set criteria when deciding who to assist with accommodation, however, those unable to occupy their homes due to the risk or fear of domestic violence, are considered legally homeless.

If you are unsure of your local authority, you can find out from the Government website using your postcode.

More helpful resources will be added to this list as time goes on.
