Women’s Aid Ireland

Women’s Aid is a leading national organisation that has been working in Ireland to stop domestic violence against women and children since 1974. We operate the 24hr National Domestic Abuse Freephone Helpline and a number of one to one support services in the Dublin region. In addition to our Direct Services, Women’s Aid acts for justice and social change by engaging in policy, representation and communications and campaigns activity at a national level. We provide specialised training on responding to domestic violence. Our Direct Services for women underpin and inform all of our work to end domestic violence.
