“Being at refuge has made me stronger. I thought I wouldn’t make it. They (staff) gave me hope, a new life that I will forever appreciate. I have never seen such an organisation who are helpful and supportive. Staff make you feel like you’re in your own house, which is rare.”


We know that going into refuge may seem daunting, but our trained team of female staff will support you in settling in. They will listen to what you need and provide practical and emotional support. Most of our refuges have self-contained flats so you will have your own space. They are clean, secure and run to stringent standards with professional policies to ensure that all residents are safe.

We have refuges specifically for young women, spaces for family units of women and children and our specialist children and family support workers run play sessions for children; they can help you to meet your children’s needs like finding a school place.

We can help with things you might be worried about like housing, safety, money, helping you register with the GP, as well as being there to listen if you want to talk.

If you want to talk about refuge and suitability for you please give our helpline a call or use our webchat service.
