Today we have the following Refuge vacancies:

 

  • Do you need somewhere safe to go away from your abuser?
  • Do you want to leave but you’re not sure what life in a refuge is like?
  • Are you anxious about losing your possessions and how you’ll manage financially?
  • Are you worried about how your children will cope?

WMWA refuges are safe places, staffed by trained workers who will help you to settle in and begin to plan your future.  They will help you to work out your money situation and apply for benefits, support you to meet your children’s needs and work with you to help you access permanent housing.

While you’re at the refuge, you will be offered support and resettlement advice and practical help.  Through meeting other women in similar situations you will begin to form supportive networks that will make it easier for you to settle into your own home when the time comes.

Refuges are women-only spaces, although men may sometimes come in to perform essential services e.g. repairing the boiler.

 

  If you think you may need to come into a refuge, please contact:
