Nottingham Central Women's Aid has existed since the 1970s to support women and children fleeing domestic abuse. We reopened on the 27th of January 2012 following a period of closure due to cuts in funding.
We are currently the only refuge within Nottingham that is not commissioned through the local authority and we do not receive any statutory funding.
We aim to provide safe temporary accommodation, with support for women with or without children, who are living with or have experienced any form of physical, sexual, emotional, psychological or economic abuse, including so called "honor" based violence and FGM.
Nottingham Central Women's Aid is a registered charity 1146410 and company.
The Refuge is housed in a large building which can accommodate six families. Communal areas include, sitting room
dining/kitchen, laundry, children’s playroom, equipped play garden and a further back yard with a separately housed craft room.
