North Lanarkshire Women’s Aid works in conjunction with other Women’s Aid organisations throughout Great Britain to maintain an “open door” policy which allows women to access Refuges in any part of the country if they feel the need to move right out of the area.

We, as an organisation believe in equality of all people regardless of race, nationality, gender, age, sexual orientation or ability. We BELIEVE all women and children who come to us for support. We believe women and children have a right to live free from all forms of violence and abuse and society has a duty to recognise and defend this right. Domestic violence is a violation of human rights.
