Wexford Women’s Refuge covers the whole of County Wexford and our Outreach Service endeavours to reach out to women who are unable to come into the Refuge for whatever reason. The Refuge is open 24/7, 365 and operates a FREE 24-hour emergency helpline.
We provide emergency accommodation to women and children experiencing domestic violence and abusive relationships. We know many women are not ready to leave their homes and are seeking support and information on various issues. These include, looking for alternative accommodation, developing a safety plan, planning what to do to rebuild their lives, reclaiming their self-esteem and being able to talk openly and to be believed in a safe, supportive environment.
We can also provide information to women who are seeking advice and support regarding legal information for example, safety orders, interim barring orders, emergency barring orders and protection orders. We can also provide court accompaniment for women who need it.
``Thank you very much for all your help and support through our very difficult time in my life. Both myself and my 2 children will be forever grateful to you all as it was a turning point in our lives for the better.``READ MORE
