Refuge

We can provide safe refuge for up to 29 women and their children. The accommodation varies from houses shared with two or three other women, to individual flats for those who need additional support. All locations of our accommodation are confidential and we aim to help you keep as safe as possible.

If you feel that you need to leave the Edinburgh area for your own safety, we can also help you to access refuge accommodation in other areas of the UK.

Once you are in a refuge, staff will be there to help you settle in to the accommodation and start planning for the future. Your decisions will always be respected, and the aim is always to help you find ways to be safe – and feel safe.

 

To access any of our services call 0131 315 8110 or email duty@edinwomensaid.co.uk. If you wish to refer a client to us please also contact us using these details.

No woman or child should be subjected to domestic abuse. If it is happening to you, please remember, it’s not your fault and we can help. Follow this link for more details of our Crisis Support Service

It’s local council election day! Make your vote matter. If you see your local candidates at the polling station, ask if they have signed our #SurvivorPledge, and are committed to supporting us to end domestic abuse in the city. #LocalElections #EdinburghWomensAid https://t.co/q1L5y45Ff6
