How can we help?

We provide pro-bono legal advice to men and women experiencing, or fleeing, domestic abuse. This advice is supported by our team of regulated barristers and solicitors.

This website

We want this website to be an educational resource for legal options and advice when dealing with domestic abuse situations, which we will be updating on a weekly basis.

How can you help?

We’re passionate about helping our local community. We support and help our local refuge centres by providing necessary products for men, women, and children. You can donate to us here.

About The Daisy Chain Project

The Daisy Chain Project is a new charity based in Worthing, West Sussex, UK with a UK-wide reach. They aim to help fight domestic violence by providing pro bono legal advice. The charity also wants to educate people about what constitutes domestic abuse, for example by writing a childrens’ book about domestic abuse which you can donate to here.

In December 2017 The Daisy Chain Project created a Christmas Hamper campaign, working with local supermarkets and small businesses to donate surplus or end of line feminine and baby products to pass on to local womens’ refuges.

The Daisy Chain Project has its own legal team, consisting of experienced, qualified, and fully regulated barristers and solicitors who offer free legal support to men and women experiencing, or fleeing, domestic abuse. They are regulated by the Bar Standards Board and Solicitors Regulation Authority respectively, so you know we only work with the most trustworthy and experienced team.

This legal support is entirely voluntary and each member is passionate about supporting as many people as possible escape from vulnerable situations. Our advice and correspondence with you is entirely confidential; we will not share data with any other authority or service [i.e. police, social services] unless you request for us to do so on your behalf.

    It has long been a myth that if you phone the emergency services’ switchboard on 999 and remain silent, the operator will know you are in trouble and dispatch help to you. Unfortunately, this is untrue and almost certainly a way to get your call disconnected because accidental 999 calls...

Thank you to Core Electrics for fixing our lights and to Worthing & Adur Council for sending a team of DIY whizzes to help us paint our office. More pics will come when we’ve done the finishing touches, but how is that for a progress shot?!

We wanted to make visiting a lawyer a friendly, and non-fusty experience and our office is completely child friendly.

Snippets of the office revamp so far... we can’t wait to share it with you when it’s all finished on (hopefully) Friday when our lovely DIY team come.

After that it’s just a case of fixing the lights and ordering a new sofa and renovation is complete 😄

Hi all, we are closed on Friday 31st May and will not be answering calls or making appointments on this day.

This is because we have a lovely team of people from Adur Homes coming to decorate our office and make it nicer for our clients. We will still be responding to emails sporadically, if we are not too covered in paint!

Hello all! Just to let you know we are working a little slower than normal due to our recent press coverage- we got an influx!

We have a little queue system in place so please bear with us- we are always happy to help where we can.

We also have recruited at least one, but possibly more, shiny new lawyers!

Stay tuned for more news 🙂

We’re fresh out of a team briefing at Worthing Job Centre in which we worked with Safe in Sussex to inform the Job Centre Staff about what they can do if they suspect one of their clients is in an abusive relationship.

We were told that with joint claims under Universal Credit, it is unfortunately possible for an abuser to exercise further control over their victim.

We believe education is the key to prevention regarding domestic abuse, and to recognise the signs can lead to early intervention.

If your organisation needs any information or briefings on the law surrounding domestic abuse, please give us a shout- we are more than happy to offer this service!

We've just received #NationalLottery funding! Thank you to everyone who plays The National Lottery for supporting us.

Find out more on the @TNLComFund website: https://t.co/8GMvebmkzs https://t.co/wM99oni3sl

We were wondering if any other domestic abuse organisations would benefit from leaflets explaining the law in an accessible way for their clients? We can make it happen if so!

❤️❤️ THANK YOU https://t.co/7dIDjv5E28
