What is refuge?

The refuge is a safe place to stay while you gather your thoughts and think about the future. Our refuge consists of 5 self-contained flats with your own front door and key. Staff are on site or nearby.

‘I thought it would be like the Hamish Allan or a hostel where you have to share but it’s not – you have your own flat and privacy.’

We know you have been through a great deal and you may still have feelings for your former partner. In refuge you will be with people who understand these feelings. You will not be judged or blamed for the abuse. Equally children and young people won’t be judged either.

‘The first night I felt safe and the weans could play without being frightened’
