Domestic abuse may affect women in a number of ways, some obvious, some more subtle.

We work with women affected by domestic abuse to help address the issues arising.

Women may experience any or all of the following:

  • Loss of opportunity; isolation from family and friends.
  • Loss of income or work.
  • Homelessness.
  • Emotional and psychological effects such as experiences of anxiety, depression or lowered sense of self-worth.
  • Poor health.
  • Physical injury or ongoing impairment. If pregnant a woman may miscarry or the baby may be stillborn.
  • Time off work or study, and long-term impact on financial security and career.
  • Death
