About The Refuge
A refuge is a safe house for women and children escaping domestic abuse. Women can live free from abuse and have time and space to recover from their experiences and start to take control of their lives.
Every woman in the refuge is escaping abuse, therefore they can share their experiences and offer each other support in an environment where they feel safe and free from abuse. Peer support can sometimes be the most beneficial support a woman can receive.
The HWA refuge accommodation has a variety of rooms/flats suitable for single women and women with children. CCTV and other security systems are in place. For those that cannot be accommodated in the main refuge there is a separate property available.
The social worker can help with:
Benefits, budgeting or other financial matters
Housing and resettlement
Advocating on your behalf
Accessing other services
Accessing language support
Children in the refuge
THE DIFFERENCE you could make
We are a not-for-profit charity and rely heavily on the generosity of people and their donations to help as many women and children as possible. We have minimal financial support and every £1 could help make a difference to those who need our services.
£26 could fund refreshments for our survivors support group.
£52 could fund 10 calls to our helpline – allowing us to provide support to more women, children and young people at a crucial time.
