How will we achieve our mission?
Refuge believes that domestic violence and violence against women and girls will only ever come to an end when the Government adopts a fully-funded national strategy that is underpinned with adequate commitment to provision, prevention and protection.
In support of this approach, Refuge operates a three-pronged strategy across its strands of work.
Refuge provides high-quality services for women and children who have experienced
violence; protects women by advocating for a strong criminal justice response to perpetrators; and prevents future violence through education, training and awareness-raising.
Support for Men
You may be visiting this site because you are, or think you might be, experiencing domestic violence. Most domestic violence is directed at women, but men can be abused too, in both heterosexual and gay relationships. It is important to realise that you are not alone. Refuge – and many other organisations – are here to help you.
You may also be visiting this site because you think you may be an abuser. It takes strength to admit that you are abusing your partner. If you really want to change, you can.
