star this property answer text <p>When a victim comes into a Jobcentre fleeing domestic abuse, we do everything we can to support the victim. Our primary aim is to determine the immediate priority needs for the individual. We support people by helping them to open a new claim and put in place an advance where needed, which provides access to funds in 2-3 hours. Where further or specialised support is required, we seek to establish the best approach for that individual, utilising links with local partnerships and charities. We directly liaise with these organisations immediately and agree next steps with the victim.</p> more like this
