About us

DABS is a not-for-profit organisation that was established over 25 years ago.

In its early days, DABS was a supplier of books and publications for those concerned with abuse. Today, the DABS book list is still maintained however sales are no longer commercially viable for us.

DABS continues to produce a National Resource Directory of approximately 650 charities, organisations and groups throughout the UK and Ireland that work in various ways to support survivors of abuse and sexual violence. The Directory has evolved over the years and the new electronic format has improved its accessibility.

In 2010, DABS introduced in-house counselling to complement the other services it provides.
