Hull Women’s Aid is an independent charity providing support to women and children experiencing domestic abuse.

Hull Women's Aid was established in 1975 by a group of women that recognised the need to provide help and support in a secure environment for women and children that are victims and survivors of domestic abuse. 

We offer safe accommodation, advice and support for women and children that are fleeing domestic abuse; floating support for women and children that have moved out of refuge accommodation and need ongoing support until they can live safely and independently; outreach support for children and young people up to the age of 25.  

1 in 4 women experience domestic abuse at some point in their lives. Children and young people are affected too.

You do not have to be in an emergency situation to contact Hull Women’s Aid. If you contact us we can offer:

  • Someone to talk to in confidence
  • A safe place to stay if that is what you want
  • Information about your rights and options available(legal rights, protection, housing, benefits etc)
  • Help with safety planning
  • Information on other agencies.

Domestic violence does not always mean Physical Violence:

  • Are you scared of your partner?
  • Are you scared of disagreeing with him or making him angry?
  • Does he constantly check up on you?
  • Does he stop you from seeing your family and friends?
  • Does he withhold money/affection/food from you?
  • Does he humiliate you and call you names?
  • Does he make you feel worthless?

If you have answered yes to any of these questions, you may be experiencing domestic violence.

At Hull Women’s Aid we aim to meet the needs of every individual women and children we support.

We will listen to you, support you and give you the time and space to decide what is best for you and your children.  We will not judge you or force you to make choices you do not want to make.

It is important to remember that the abuse you are experiencing is not your fault

Domestic Violence can happen to any woman irrespective of her age, class, disability, ethnicity, lifestyle, religion, sexuality or transgender status.
