We provide confidential support, information, outreach services and refuge accommodation for women and their children who are affected by domestic abuse and violence.
We provide confidential support, information and outreach services to men who have experienced domestic abuse and violence.
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.
All BWA activities are underpinned by a set of values adopted by the organisation’s volunteers, staff, management and trustees:
Welcoming and empowering – we listen, encourage and equip people to make
Places of safety – we provide environments where anyone using our services can talk freely, live safely and think about the 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 BWA: 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 – BWA encourages people to understand domestic abuse and violence, to seek support and report concerns.
