Who we are

Based in Stockbridge, Edinburgh Women’s Aid is a safe and friendly all-female organisation. We provide support and refuge to women and children who are experiencing domestic abuse.

2,500 women a year benefit from our services. So if you’re in an abusive situation, or think you are at risk of abuse from your partner or ex-partner, we can help.

Edinburgh Women’s Aid offers lots of different kinds of support, including:

  • Crisis line
  • One-to-one support and advice, either in person or by phone
  • Legal advice
  • Refuge in safe homes
  • Support when you have moved into your own accommodation
  • Support, if you find it difficult to get to our main office, through Outreach service
