One in four women experience domestic abuse at some point in their lives (Council of Europe, 2002).

Abusive behaviour may be common in society, but it is not acceptable. If you are experiencing abuse or seeing it inflicted on someone else, we are here to help you with advice and support.

Domestic abuse is a repetitive cycle of behaviour providing your abuser with power and control over you. It can make you feel helpless and trapped. If you are not sure whether what you are seeing or experiencing is domestic abuse, then you can find out more here.

Service Aims

We aim to increase public awareness of domestic abuse so that the norm in our society is to recognise and challenge abuse. We do this by providing information and support,  training professionals on how to provide and signpost support, and providing emergency accommodation and support for women and children who have experienced domestic abuse.

We empower women to escape abusive situations and rebuild their lives. Our services are open to you whatever your gender, religion, sexual orientation or ethnicity. We will do everything we can to help or signpost you  to other specialist services through our partner organisations.

Our History

Greenwich Women’s Aid was established in 1975 by a group of local, concerned and committed women.

In 2009 the organisation joined Housing for Women. In 2013 we re-launched as Greenwich DVA Services and expanded our helpline services to support as many women from across London as possible.
