About BWA

 Our Vision

All women, children and men should be able to live free from the fear and experience of domestic abuse and violence in their homes and relationships.

Working Against Domestic Abuse in Berkshire

We provide confidential support, information, outreach services and refuge accommodation for women and their children who are affected by domestic abuse and violence.  We work throughout Bracknell, Reading, West Berkshire and Wokingham, and we are affiliated to the Women’s Aid Federation of England (WAFE).

Our Values

Everything we do is  underpinned by a set of values:


Welcoming and empowering – we listen, encourage and empower people to make informed choices


Places of safety – we provide space where anyone using our services can talk freely, live safely and think about their future


We do not judge – we listen and provide the environment where people using the service can recognise that some aspects of their life are not the way they want them to be


Trust – you can trust us: confidentiality is paramount and people using our service can count on professional, highly skilled support


Equality – we believe in providing support to anyone who needs it, regardless of their sex, ethnicity, religion, age, sexual orientation or disability


Raising awareness – We support  people to understand domestic abuse and violence, to seek support and report concerns.
