Women’s Aid is the national charity working to end domestic abuse against women and children. Over the past 44 years, Women’s Aid has been at the forefront of shaping and coordinating responses to domestic violence and abuse through practice, research and policy. We empower survivors by keeping their voices at the heart of our work, working with and for women and children by listening to them and responding to their needs.

We are a federation of over 180 organisations who provide just under 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. We hold the largest national data set on domestic abuse, and use research and evidence to inform all of our work. 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.

In 2018 the Women’s Aid Federations across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland were awarded a £1.2 million grant from the Department for Culture Media and Sport to develop and embed our successful ‘ask me’ scheme.

A significant part of this grant is the embedding of national learning framework across the four nations and the creation of a learning and governance network across the Women’s Aid federations. You will be responsible for the coordination and provision of secretarial support to the new information sharing and monitoring framework.
