Women’s Aid in Luton is a voluntary organisation supporting women and children who fall victim to domestic abuse. They offer support and guidance to women and children from all backgrounds and circumstances, this could be just being someone to listen or to offer complete support in breaking away and starting again. They offer a helpline and drop in support groups.
They provide support, information, guidance, and safe accommodation for women and children who have suffered from or are exposed to gender-based violence. They offer practical help, emotional support and/or a temporary safe place to be, enabling women to have thinking time and an opportunity to prepare for a new life. They are also committed to raising awareness of domestic abuse and its effects within the community.
Their refuges allow women access to peer support groups, education, one to one sessions with trained staff and access to legal advice. The children’s service is a vital part of Women’s Aid in Luton, with trained and skilled support workers able to work with the children that come into refuge to allow them to come to terms with their experiences.
