I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'relief to leakers' is the definition.
I can't judge whether this defines the answer.

'address takes in assange initially' is the wordplay.
'address' becomes 'url' (I can't justify this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).
'takes' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'initially' indicates taking the first letters.
The first letter of 'assange' is 'a'.
'url' enclosing 'ina' is 'URINAL'.

'giving' is the link.

(Other definitions for urinal that I've seen before include "public convenience" , "Sanitary fitting" , "waste disposal unit" .)
