Many women and their children across in Edinburgh are living in emotionally, physically, sexually, or economically abusive circumstances. With your donations, Edinburgh Women's Aid can offer support to these vulnerable people, through calls and support sessions as well as necessary equipment, food, and shelter. Different forms of support are offered, including drop-in sessions, crisis counselling, group and one-to-one sessions, and outreach support depending on each woman's specific needs.
One-to-one support sessions help women to heal from their trauma and to build trust and good relationships with people who want to help them. Likewise, access to creative outlets such as art therapy can help children who have experienced domestic abuse to express their feelings, build better methods of communication, and promote a healthy recovery.
Your impact donation is helping to achieve the below Sustainable Development Goals developed by the United Nations.
Edinburgh Women's Aid works to offer support to women who are suffering from domestic abuse. The support provided includes information and choices concerning domestic abuse, such as housing options, benefits, welfare rights and legal issues, as well as emotional support. We understand that getting help is a big decision and we’re here to support all women any way we can.
