Refuges are ‘Self Help’ – what does that mean?

Women’s Aid was set up in the 1970s by women for women, children and young people. In keeping with this idea there are no wardens and few rules. Support is available from the refuge and childrens workers. There is also an out of hours on call service for emergencies.

In Women’s Aid no-one will tell you what to do. Instead we will give you information about your options. This way you can make your own decisions and we will support you in any way we can.

‘You are listened to right from the start – and not judged.’
