Welcome to the website for Dundee Women's Aid. We aim to help you to understand what Domestic Abuse is, who we are and how we can help you.
As an organisation we provide a range of services including information, support and temporary refuge accommodation. We provide a confidential, and non-judgemental service to women, young people and children who have experienced domestic abuse. The abuse may be from a partner, ex-partner or someone you are living with.
We support all women experiencing domestic abuse. We do not discriminate on the grounds of: disability, intersex status, sexual orientation, religion and belief, race, or transgender identity.
We hold the LGBT Youth Scotland charter mark and work with members of the LGBT community who identify as women.
