Women’s Support

If you are frightened or worried about the way your partner or ex-partner is treating you, you do not have to put up with it. There are many things you can do to protect yourself and any children from further harm.

No one deserves to be abused.

Wigtownshire Women’s Aid can offer you confidential information and support.

We offer support over the phone, in our office and in the community. These are some of the ways we can provide support to you:

  • One to one support, tailored to suit your individual needs
  • Support, whether you choose to stay with or leave your partner
  • A safe, temporary place to stay for you and any accompanying children
  • Crisis support, a friendly listening ear when you need it.
  • Information and choices concerning domestic abuse, such as housing options, benefits, welfare rights and legal issues
  • Give you information about your rights
  • Sign posting to other agencies that can help
  • Safety Planning
  • Group work with other women
