Help-Seeking Model

AVA has developed a model on the process of help seeking through its work with survivors and colleagues.

The model attempts to show that the journey of a woman experiencing abuse is complex and hugely personal, and does not fit neatly with models of social care and support.

The model identifies specific stages in the help-seeking process, but also recognises that women move forward, back and around between stages depending on their experiences during the process.
