Today we have the following Refuge vacancies:

 

WMWA provides a comprehensive recovery pathway for women experiencing domestic abuse, offering a HappyWomenwide selection of group support & recovery programmes.

These can be delivered in refuges, in the community or on a 121 basis through its supporting change service.

The group programmes are provided for women who are ready to consider working towards greater empowerment. 

The sessions provide emotional and therapeutic support to assist women towards:

  •  An understanding and awareness of the dynamics of abuse, its effects on her and her children
  • Motivation to recognise and change victim behaviours
  • Change and transformation
  • Increased Self-esteem
  • Understanding and working towards long-term recovery
  • Ability to set and work towards future goals

WMWA recommends that women follow the recovery pathway from Group A – F and this may take up to 12 months to complete, depending on what stage of the recovery process the individual is at.

For women who are struggling to identify abuse within their relationships in our experience it is most productive to start with the parenting programme. 

Women often tell us that their motivation for leaving is when they realise their children are being affected by the abuse.
