We provide a confidential service that provides valuable information, support and temporary accommodation to women and their children who have experienced domestic abuse, campaign to raise awareness of this issue and support other domestic and sexual violence services throughout the area.

Our refuges are safe and temporary places to stay. Refuges are about safety, support and the opportunity to talk with other women who have had similar experiences to yourself and knowing you are not alone...
