The Wellspring of Life Women’s Refuge was set up as a Company Limited by Guarantee (CLG) in October 2018, we received our Charitable status early in 2019. We began actively working in the community with families struggling with domestic abuse during the pandemic. We now have two advocacy cafes/meeting rooms in Dublin city centre, where women can come on a referral-only basis (this is for their protection). The first one opened on 12th January 2022 and the second one will open shortly.


  • We signpost women to diverse services including counselling at a reduced rate.

  • We advocate with various agencies

  • We provide help with food and utilities

  • We encourage and empower women.

  • We sometimes simply drink tea and listen
