Women's Aid in Luton
Women’s Aid in Luton is a voluntary organisation supporting women and children who fall victim to domestic abuse. We offer support and guidence to womens 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 acces to peer support groups, education, one to one sessions with trained staff, access to legal advice and a fully equipped resource room with IT and access to the internet. We also run a weekly craft session 'craft and laugh', these sessions give our women vital time and space to learn a new skill and make new friends.
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.
When women are moving on from the refuge Women’s Aid in Luton provides a Move On support fund and access to this is based on individual need, the money, vouchers we provide enable women to furnish their new accommodation with the basics for everyday living.
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 provide this vital support.
