About Us


Newark Women's Aid is a small, friendly, independent, local charity providing specialist services to support women with or without children who have experienced physical, sexual, emotional, psychological or economic abuse from a partner, ex-partner or family member.   Our aim is to support, inform and empower women to enable them to rebuild their lives and make informed decisions to determine their future and establish and maintain their independence.

Newark Women's Aid was established in 1975 to meet these aims and opened a refuge, one of the first in the country, to provide direct access accommodation with support services for women and children who have been made homeless because of domestic violence and abuse.    To date  we are proud to have supported  4,200 women and 6,400 children.

Newark Women's Aid is a Registered Charity No. 511685, governed by a Board of Trustees who oversee the general management of the project.
