West Mercia Women’s Aid


West Mercia Women’s Aid (WMWA) works with women for whom ‘home’ is not a safe place to be. They may call our 24/7 Helpline just because they need to tell somebody and be believed. They may need information and advice so they can weigh up their options.  Some escape with just what they can carry to our safe spaces – our refuges and satellite accommodation. Some seek support in securing the legal and criminal justice protection they need in order to be safe, and stay safe in their own homes. They may join with other women who share their experience in our online and face-to-face recovery groups.  Some may feel ready to engage in talking therapy to help them explore and manage the trauma of being in a relationship with someone who says that they love you, and is then cruel, controlling and aggressive. The choice is theirs,

Where children are affected, we provide age-appropriate group and 1:1 support to process and recover from the experience of living with domestic abuse, and to recognise the behaviours that make up a healthy relationship. Our vision is for a world free from domestic abuse, and we focus not only on support but also on awareness-raising and prevention.

West Mercia Women’s Aid (WMWA) is committed to protecting your privacy, whether as a member of staff, client, stakeholder, supporter, supplier or visitor to our website. This Privacy Notice explains what personal data we may collect, how we use it and how we ensure it is kept secure.

In the course of providing support to clients, WMWA may also ask for consent to share personal data with other organisations so that we can provide the best support to you. These organisations include housing providers and health services. This will be explained to you at the start of your support with us and you will have the opportunity to either give, or to decline to give your consent to WMWA sharing your data with other agencies at any time during the time that you are working with us.

The service is confidential unless there are safeguarding concerns (see above).
