Who we are

 “They helped me to regain my confidence and rebuild my life.”

“When I came here my hands were empty…now they are full of happiness.”

Sandwell Women’s Aid have for the last 25 years offered refuge, support and counselling to victims of domestic abuse and sexual violence. We place victims’ voices at the heart of all that we do, and our specialist team works with drive and passion to change policy, practice and people’s lives.

We take a whole-person approach to interpersonal violence, and over the years the organisation has grown from a single refuge to a large accommodation provider, community support agency and training and policy advisory.  Our portfolio of specialised services now includes:
