Recognising what is happening to you, or has happened in the past, is the first step in escaping the pain and misery of domestic and sexual abuse.
Talk to a friend or relative or contact Women’s Aid. There are many Women’s Aid groups in Ireland and the UK; Belfast and Lisburn Women’s Aid is one of them. We provide confidential support and information. You can talk to someone at our Support and Resource Centre, in your own home, or in a safe place in your community.
Our workers will help you look at your options for safety, accommodation, support through the legal system, and contact other organisations that can provide relevant support for your particular situation.
We can be contacted in a number of ways;
Our referral desk team can provide support via phone, email or webchat weekdays from 9am to 5pm and until 8pm on Thursdays. Our phone lines are monitored by our refuge teams outside of these hours.
The 24 Hour Domestic & Sexual Abuse Helpline provides a confidential telephone, email, web chat and text service. It is open to anyone affected by domestic abuse regardless of gender, sexuality, disability, age or ethnicity.
The Helpline takes calls from those directly affected by domestic abuse and also friends and families seeking to support those experiencing domestic abuse. They also receive calls from voluntary and statutory agencies and provide an information service to help them meet the needs of those experiencing domestic abuse.
Everyone has the right to feel safe and the helpline offers an anonymous support service to all callers.
