Who Are We
Established in 1987 as a women’s refuge, we’ve now grown into multi faceted charity organisation. We provide a wealth of services for all victims of domestic violence and abuse. From emergency accommodation for women, men and children, confidential counselling and group recovery meetings we can provide support for anyone affected by domestic abuse.
Our mission is to build hope and confidence with people affected by domestic abuse to live a future without fear.
Don’t Be A Bystander, launched in 2017, is our flagship campaign. Its central role is to encourage witnesses of domestic abuse to come forward to the police and charities like ourselves.
People can feel ashamed and scared talking about domestic abuse. The aim of this campaign is to encourage the witnesses of such violence to come forward and provide a voice for those who can’t speak.
