Hull Women’s Aid is an independent charity providing support to women and children experiencing domestic abuse

Founded 1975

  • Mission statement

    Hull Women’s Aid has been established for 42 years and is a member of the Women’s Aid Federation of England. We are the sole provider of safe and secure refuge accommodation on the north bank of the Humber for women and children fleeing domestic violence. We support both women and children who are experience/fleeing domestic violence and abuse by providing temporary accommodation and individual support to women. The refuge address is confidential and all women in the refuge are escaping from a domestic relationship. As well as the refuge we also support women and children on an outreach and floating support basis, this means that all women can receive the support they need even if not suitable or not comfortable in refuge accommodation, our children’s workers also visit schools throughout Hull visiting children and offering support to those who have experienced or witnessed domestic abuse.
