Women’s Aid In Luton

Women’s Aid in Luton exists until Women and Children are Safe

Women’s Aid in Luton is a voluntary organisation supporting women and children who fall victim to domestic abuse. We offer support and guidance to women’s and children from all backgrounds and circumstances. For some this will just be someone to listen and for others this will be to offer them complete support to break away and start again. This may be through our helpline or even through one of our drop-in support groups.
Our refuges are vital in allowing women access to peer support groups, education, one to one sessions with trained staff, access to legal advice. Our children’s service is vital part of Women’s Aid in Luton, the trained and skilled children’s support workers are able to work with the children that come into refuge to allow them to come to terms with their experiences.
Women’s Aid in Luton are able to provide all of the above services because of the continued generosity of individuals, local community groups and corporate supporters to help us to continue to
