About Us

Sign-up to our Newsletter

Fortalice provides frontline services including a refuge with 22 flats, training and group work for victims who are, or have been affected by domestic abuse and violence.

Our services support women, men, families, children and young people in Bolton and the surrounding areas. Survivors are invited to engage with group work or individual sessions to address the abuse they have lived with. We work to promote and ensure a future free from abuse and educating young people is a key part of our service.

Since the organisation was established in 1977 we have provided support, education and advice to thousands of families. Staff have a wealth of specialist skills, expertise and knowledge in this area.

The Board

The Fortalice Board is made up of a group of local volunteers who each bring expertise and experience including safety, safeguarding, employment, law, social care, housing and marketing.

The quarterly Board meetings cover areas overseeing finance, strategy, employment, buildings and future plans among others. Board members liaise with the Chief Executive and Finance Director to help ensure the smooth running of the Refuge, Outreach Support Centre and all services.

“There is more to life than being abused and controlled…”
