About us

Providing a safe, peaceful and loving place of refuge.

Our Vision

We are so passionate to see women and children who have been directly affected by domestic violence walk in freedom.


We are a faith-based charity that aims to provide a safe, peaceful, loving place of refuge to women and women with children who have been emotionally, physically or sexually abused in the privacy of their own homes. The refuge is open to all women and women with children regardless of their beliefs, it is open to all faiths and none. We will partner with suitable agencies to further their restoration and growth.

We’ve been offered a building under very favourable terms, enabling us to provide these much needed services. While taking refuge with us for up to a maximum of six months we will offer many services.

Our Services

  • We aim to provide accommodation to ten families at a time.

  • We will provide clothing and food. All of our vegetables are grown in the refuge garden on the property.

  • We will have a baby / child play area designed specifically to suit their needs.

  • We will facilitate transport and accompaniment to court hearings, solicitors, counselling and social welfare services. 

  • We will have a full programme of courses and classes available to our residents.

How can I help?

A little bit goes a very long way! We are so grateful for any donation amount that you can afford. We're also looking for specific household items that are in excellent condition.
