ABOUT GLASGOW WOMENS AID
During the onset of Covid-19 and lockdown, we adapted our service to ensure that we could continue to provide the best support we can to women, children and young people experiencing domestic abuse.
As nationwide Covid-19 rules continue to ease, we have re-introduced more in-person support including peer-support groups, in-person group sessions and in-person follow-on and outreach support.
We were established in 1973 during the second wave of the women’s liberation movement – a period where activists collectively recognized that there was a need to provide support and safe refuge to women experiencing domestic abuse. Initially, our focus was on women’s experiences, but as the organization evolved our focus included children and young people.
