About Blijf Groep

Help for domestic violence

Blijf Groep helps to stop domestic violence. We offer assistance to all involved: victims, children, witnesses and perpetrators. Our aim is to stop the violence and create safety through customized support.

Blijf Group offers both help at home as crisis shelters and residential support. We also offer an extensive support through groups for children, teenagers and adults. Blijf Group has branches in North Holland and Flevoland.

Our method

The first step in a support process is always your safety and – if present – the safety of your children. If the situation is unsafe, we will act immediately. By calling the police or arranging a shelter. Together with you we decide what the next steps should be. An outreaching assistance program? A shelter facility? If possible, we prefer to help you in your own home. Where you have your social contacts, your work and your children’s school and friends.

Our aim is always to permanently stop the violence. That is why we do not only focus on you, but on all members of the family, including the perpetrator of the violence. Together we try to gain insight into the underlying patterns of violence. We make a Safety plan with you on your terms that ensures everyone’s safety as much as possible.

Oranje Huis Appraoch

To prevent domestic violence in a sustainable way, Blijf Groep has developed the Oranje Huis Method.

  • Not secret but safe. The location of an Orange House is not secret, but it is safe. This open setting makes the Oranje Huis accessible for everyone. So you can keep your social contacts.
  • We create safety together. The support provided by Blijf Group is aimed not only for yourself, but also at the rest of the family, including the perpetrator of the violence.
  • We teach you how to use your own strength and the resources in your environment. So that you can regain control of your life yourself.
