Charity description

North Ayrshire Women's Aid logo
North Ayrshire Women's Aid is the only organisation in the area specialising in the support and protection of women, children and young people affected by domestic abuse. We aim to change attitudes about abuse and ultimately end it. We help women, children and young people recover from the effects of domestic abuse and move on with their lives.

--------"Before Women's Aid I didn't know where to turn. I felt like I had no one to understand me. I felt like giving up. Now I feel i am getting better. I dont' want to give up any more. I am much happier".------------------------------ For 30 years North Ayrshire Women's Aid has been campaigning, supporting and developing services for Women, Children & Young People who have experienced domestic abuse.
We adopt a holistic approach, offering a whole package of emotional and practical support
