The Old Fire Station is now a J9 Centre
(58 Southend Road, Essex SS5 4QH)
We are open Monday-Thursday 9am-1pm.
J9 is a discreet and innovative support network for domestic abuse victims.
As part of this initiative, select staff from Hockley Parish Council have been trained to become contact points for those suffering domestic abuse.
Named in memory of Janine Mundy, who was killed in Cornwall by her estranged husband while he was on police bail, the J9 project involves offices displaying stickers in their windows to act as an indicator to victims that staff members are trained, and it is a safe space. Victims can then speak to someone at the premises, who will put them in touch with professional help at Safer Places, a local domestic abuse charity.
