Domestic Abuse Relocation Service - Revive

Revive project: specialist move-on service for domestic abuse survivors

Revive project is an enhanced add-on option to Homefinder UK case management service, focused on relocating domestic abuse survivors. It was specifically designed to provide move-on housing options for those fleeing domestic abuse with no outlet to escape.

To date, this service has supported over 100 survivors to find social housing across the country. Revive aims to provide a real alternative for domestic abuse survivors to find social housing without competing against other high priority groups.



Specialist case management service

Revive is not focused on rehousing only, the service offers a wrap-around support and guidance for domestic abuse survivors. As a result, we ensure they get rehoused and can start a new life without fear.

A dedicated and highly specialist case management team will:

  • Assist domestic abuse survivors and discuss their needs and areas of choice
  • Support survivors with property search, housing applications form, references & viewings
  • Attend and advocate for the survivor at multi-agency & MARAC meetings
  • Signpost to other domestic abuse organisations to ensure further support in new location
