COVID-19 Information

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.

  • We closed our in-person drop-in service and took on a dedicated crisis support Helpline worker. This way, survivors calling the Helpline could have a consistent voice to talk to and that there are always at least 3 support workers available on the helpline.
  • We took on more refuge spaces to provide safe, anonymous spaces for survivors fleeing domestic abuse.
  • We conducted our support sessions and peer-support groups online or via call.

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.

About Us

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.
