Women’s Aid is the national charity for women and children working to end domestic abuse. Over the past 40 years Women’s Aid has been at the forefront of shaping and coordinating responses to domestic violence and abuse through practice. We empower survivors by keeping their voices at the heart of our work, listening and responding to their needs. We are a federation of over 220 organisations who provide more than 300 local lifesaving services to women and children across the country. We provide expert training, qualifications and consultancy to a range of agencies and professionals working with survivors or commissioning domestic abuse services, and award a National Quality Mark for services which meet our quality standards. Our campaigns achieve change in policy, practice and awareness, encouraging healthy relationships and helping to build a future where domestic abuse is no longer tolerated. The 24 Hour National Domestic Violence Helpline on 0808 2000 247 (run in partnership with Refuge) and our range of online services, which include the Survivors’ Forum, help hundreds of thousands of women and children every year.

We keep voices of survivors at the heart of our work through:  


By influencing laws,  and working in partnership with key national and local agencies.


Through raising public awareness and developing education programmes e.g.hideout.org.ukcampaigns

By providing services needed to help abused women and children e.g. UKROL, the National Domestic Violence Helpline.
