PARAGON has teams offering services in Sussex

The PARAGON team in Sussex is a specialist domestic abuse team working with people who are experiencing domestic abuse. We work with adults and children and have a small and dedicated team working across Sussex, providing a whole family response to domestic abuse, working with individuals, couples and families.

We work in partnership with the Police and Crime Commissioners Office and have secured Ministry of Justice funding to offer a holistic intervention.
