Local support near you

Our directory contains up to date information about domestic abuse support services across the UK. It is regularly updated by the services listed so you’ll be able to find the right local support, when you need it most.

Find the right support service for you

Women’s Aid’s directory contains details of local, regional and national services specialising in violence against women and girls including domestic abuse, sexual violence, forced marriage and stalking/harassment. 

Our directory is powered by Routes to Support, which has provided detailed information about services since 2003. This means it is constantly updated by the services listed and contains a comprehensive listing of services throughout the UK.

If you are on a slower connection then this search can take slightly longer to return results.

Reaching out for help  

We know asking for help isn’t easy. But if you think you’re in an abusive relationship, getting in touch with your local support service can be an important first step. Services are fully trained and can give you a confidential space to explore your options and make safe decisions. 

It’s never too early or late to reach out. 

Women’s Aid’s package of online support has something for everyone, if you want to talk to a trained professional support worker you can contact our Live Chat helpline [link], for peer support sign up for our Survivors’ Forum [link] or see our Survivors’ Handbook for online information about domestic abuse.
