Women’s Aid ABCLN provides confidential support, information and emergency accommodation for women and children affected by domestic abuse across Antrim, Ballymena, Carrickfergus, Larne and Newtownabbey. We offer one to one support, practical assistance and group work for women in the community. We provide specialised services and support for children and young people affected by domestic abuse. Our Older But No Safer project provides increased awareness and greater protection for women aged 55 and over. We believe that no-one should have to live in fear or threat from abuse. We listen to what women tell us, and recognise and respond to their individual needs. Our work is trauma informed and needs led. We work with women experiencing domestic abuse to develop a support plan focusing on safety planning and protection measures. Knowing that help is available, that there is a way out of the domestic abuse they have experienced enables women to transform their lives. We challenge, advocate and lobby for and with women. Through early intervention and preventative work, we challenge attitudes and beliefs which lead to male violence against women. We work with partner organisations and communities to increase understanding and awareness about domestic abuse, equipping them to recognise and respond to the issues faced. Together we are working to end domestic abuse.
