Eva Women's Aid

Eva exists to stop violence against women and children by supporting them to speak out from places of safety. Refuge accomodation provides women with safe crisis accomodation to recover from the violence and abuse usually at the hands of their male partner /father. Our awareness raising, training and counselling support women on therir personal journey to safety.
We have managed a refuge since 1989, with an converted house with 8 family rooms with shared toilets and bathrooms.
Children are the hidden victims of domestic abuse: we help them understand the violence and that it is not their fault through one to one support, group work with other children with similar experiences.
Advocacy is the key to unlock the legal system, to bring justice to survivors and to hold perpetrators accountable for their behaviour.
Eva is campaigning for funds to build a unique healing and advocacy centre for women and children traumatised by violence and is needing to raise £2. 5million pounds. The centre will be in the north east of England and serve the urban and rural communities of Redcar and Cleveland.
Attitudes here are traditionally embedded in the ex patriarchal steel and chemical industrial cultures. The women and children will stay here and thrive making the most of economic changes and investments but only when they are free of violence in their homes.
