About The Emma Project

The Emma Project is a unique refuge and outreach service for women who have experienced domestic and sexual violence and who also use substances problematically.

The women who enter the refuge usually have long histories of abuse and disadvantage for example childhood abuse, domestic and sexual violence in their relationships, exploitation through prostitution including coercion and control by pimps, drug dealers, and people traffickers.  They may have mental health problems and complex needs including dial diagnosis, learned survival and coping strategies which can lead to difficulties in them accessing and benefitting from services, criminal records, experience of street homelessness and frequently been excluded from other services, including refuges.  

We offer a high and specialist level of staffing which means that we are able to work with women who still use drugs and/or alcohol problematically; this is essential because leaving a violent relationship is a time of crisis and for many women this is not the best time to address substance use issues effectively.  Most other refuges require women to be drug free to use the service. Our aim is to provide a safe place that accepts women as they are whilst supporting them to identify goals and find ways of moving forward and away from the multiple harms they live with.

We also help agencies supporting women with problematic substance use to better meet their needs and provide training on violence against women and problematic substance use.

The Emma Project is run by nia, a London based organisation providing cutting edge services to end violence against women and children; with almost 40 years’ experience, nia’s services are continually evolving in order to respond to the needs of groups that are most vulnerable or without access to services.
