Description

Scottish Women’s Aid is the lead organisation in Scotland working towards the prevention of domestic abuse. We play a vital role coordinating, influencing and campaigning for effective responses to domestic abuse.

We work with a network of 36 specialist local Women’s Aid groups toward a shared vision of a Scotland where domestic abuse is not tolerated.

An important aspect of our work is ensuring that women and children who have experienced domestic abuse get the services they need, both from local Women’s Aid groups and from the agencies they are likely to contact.

Our members are local Women’s Aid groups which provide specialist services to women, children and young people. These include safe refuge accommodation, information and support.

We provide advice, information, training and publications to members and non-members.
