Services Together - Working together with other agencies to increase the safety of people experiencing domestic abuse

ASSIST is a free, phone based, independent domestic abuse advocacy service.  We support people of all genders whose partner, or ex-partner, has a domestic abuse case going through the criminal court.

ASSIST is part of Glasgow City Council, however, can support people living in the following areas: 

  • Argyll and Bute
  • Ayrshire (East, North and South)
  • Dumfries and Galloway
  • Glasgow
  • Dunbartonshire (East and West)
  • Inverclyde
  • Lanarkshire (North and South)
  • Renfrewshire (including East Renfrewshire)

We also support men with domestic abuse cases going through an Edinburgh court.  If you are a woman with a case going through an Edinburgh court, Edinburgh Women's Aid EDACS service may be able to offer you support.

If you have a domestic abuse case going through court in one of the areas listed above, but you live elsewhere, we may still be able to offer support.
