Enabling people to make choices
BWA provides a range of services to enable people in situations of domestic abuse to make choices about their future and to rebuild their lives.
Someone to talk to
The BWA Helpline is a first port of call for many caught up in abusive relationships or worried about others who may be experiencing abuse. The service provides the caller with an experienced listener who can then provide information, engage with the victim and begin to set out the choices that are available in different situations.
Places of Safety from Domestic Abuse
Providing refuge services has been and remains a central area of service for BWA. Refuge services offer a place of safety, free from fear where domestic abuse victims, many of whom have children, can begin to rebuild their lives.
Prevention, Advocacy and Help
BWA provides services that seek to address differing needs related to domestic abuse and to raise awareness of the issue among opinion formers, professionals and the general public.
