North Nottinghamshire Independent Domestic Abuse Services (NNIDAS)

NNIDAS is a registered charity, formerly known as Mansfield and Ashfield Women's Aid. Their main aim is to help people experiencing domestic abuse.

They also work hard with other agencies to raise awareness of domestic abuse and help prevent people becoming victims of this crime.

Since 1989 specialist domestic abuse support workers have helped women and children who have experienced physical, sexual, financial, emotional or psychological abuse. In April 2009, NNIDAS started the MANN Project aimed at raising awareness and supporting male victims of domestic abuse.
