WHO WE ARE

What is Women’s Aid in the Western Isles?

We are an organisation for women run by women. Our aim is to help abused women and their children, and to end such violence against women.

What is Women’s Aid in Scotland?

There are 39 Women’s Aid groups in Scotland. This network is supported by Scottish Women’s Aid which undertakes national work, such as campaigning, education and training. Women’s Aid in Scotland have a national children’s office to focus on the needs of the children and abused women.

How is Western Isles Women’s Aid Funded?

We are a charitable organisation and are dependent on fund raising and support from the community. Our future greatly depends upon grants and donations. We receive an individual donation and a grant from our local authority each year.

WE LISTEN AND SUPPORT YOU

“This is an excellent service where women receive the help, guidance and support they need in their lives, especially in difficult circumstances. It is a place where women come together to empower each other and a wonderful community spirit prevails.”

“Fantastic help & support. These wonderful ladies go above & beyond! When your at your lowest nothing is too much for them.”

VISION

The vision of Scottish Women’s Aid is a Scotland with no domestic abuse, where women, young people, and children enjoy all their human rights and have equal opportunity to explore all their ambitions and aspirations.

MISSION

Scottish Women’s Aid works to end domestic abuse by:

  • Supporting and advocating for the women in our network who work with women, children and young people experiencing domestic abuse.
  • Engaging with government and other national stakeholders to help them understand and respond boldly to the problem of domestic abuse in Scotland.
  • Challenging the pillars of women’s inequality – poverty of rights, autonomy, money, and power.

If you or a friend need help we are here to listen.
