Foyle Women's Aid Community Support Services

Community Support Service

Foyle Women’s Aid believes that no-one should suffer domestic abuse and offers a free, specialist service to women in the Foyle, Limavady and Strabane areas.

Specialist support workers provide confidential support, information and emergency accommodation for women and their children. They can meet you at your home, at our premises or at a safe place within your community.

A support worker will help you look at your options in relation to:

  • Accommodation
  • Personal Safety
  • Legal issues
  • Housing
  • Income/Budgeting
  • Physical and Mental Well being
  • Support Networks
  • Personal growth

The Community Support Service can link you to other Women’s Aid Services:

  • Criminal Justice Service
  • Court Support
  • Accommodation
  • Training and Education
  • Group Work/Journey To Freedom
  • Childcare Service
  • Youth Service
Community Support workers can also liaise with other organisations in the community that can provide support for you.

How to refer

The Community Support Service takes referrals from women themselves and from statutory and voluntary agencies. We also take enquiries from family and friends with the victims consent.
