About us

North Lanarkshire Women’s Aid provide for women and children:

  • safe accommodation (refuge)
  • 24 hour/365 days on-call service
  • information and advice (e.g. benefits, legal, housing)
  • support and counselling
  • assistance (e.g. form filling, re-housing)

At present, there are 10 safe houses (refuges) giving a total of 20 spaces.  These are all located in the northern corridor of North Lanarkshire.  Resource Workers are responsible for the maintenance, security and support within the refuges.  Where possible, a women and her family will be given sole occupancy of the accommodation.  The address of any of these refuges should remain confidential at all times.

We are committed to raising awareness of domestic abuse, its causes and effects on women, children and young people.  We regularly give talks and presentations to schools as well as attending events held locally to keep domestic abuse high on social agendas.
