Victoria

Domestic Abuse Advisor

Accommodation Team

I am passionate about raising awareness of domestic abuse. During the past four years, I have worked alongside survivors to empower them to become more confident, resilient and independent. As a Domestic Abuse Advisor in the refuge my role is varied and often challenging but I am privileged to be a part of the positive changes in the lives of the families I support.

Aminah

Assistant Support Worker

Accommodation Team

Hi, my name's Aminah. I'm an Assistant Support Worker at the family refuge. My role within TDAS is to create various community events held at the refuge, assist the domestic abuse advisors with their roles, and provide emotional support to our residents.

My journey with TDAS started when I decided to volunteer with them in the summer of 2020 and after a few months, I was offered the position that I'm in now. As soon as I walked through the door, I knew that TDAS was exactly where I wanted and needed to be. It is a very special, unique charity that works tirelessly to provide support to victims of domestic abuse and has helped countless people to transform their lives.
My gratitude to be a part of TDAS is boundless. It's a place packed with understanding and the most incredible part about it all is that every single person involved with TDAS, whether it be an employee or a service user, gains an experience from being with them that will aid them for the rest of their lives.

Sharan

Domestic Abuse Advisor

Accommodation Team

My name is Sharan, I have three grown-up children and I have worked for TDAS supporting women and children for over twenty years. For ten years my focus was mainly on the support of children and young people specifically. I then retrained and worked in the role of an Information and Advice Worker. For the past six years, I’ve worked as a Domestic Abuse Advisor based at the refuge. I enjoy my role as no two days are the same and it’s fulfilling when you see the positive journey the families make. There’s lots of thinking on your feet and problem solving, but all adds to the sense of satisfaction when the positive outcomes are achieved.

Hi, my name is Karima and I joined the TDAS team in April 2020.

I have since been working in the voluntary sector and have worked predominantly with vulnerable young people and children in various settings. I have extensive knowledge of working with BME communities (BME women in particular) and I am also a fluent speaker of the Arabic language.
