We at Aoibhneas aim to empower each person to live in freedom and safety from domestic abuse through a healing process that nurtures and enables positive growth and societal change. We provide safe emergency accommodation for women and children experiencing domestic abuse through provision of 10 self-contained units for 10 families. The refuge offers facilities such as a communal kitchen, dining area, sitting room, laundry facilities, courtyard and outdoor children’s play area. Women and children can access refuge accommodation on a 24 hour, 365 days a year. Within our refuge setting, we provide a number of interventions for women and children.
