Friends Hiking Through The Hills Of Los Angeles

Our treasured ethos has been built upon our long rich heritage of campaigning to end domestic abuse, which began in the 70’s and continues to be based upon our working premise of: for women, with women, by women.

Our principles

  • Survivor engagement: Women and children are at the heart of everything we do and we will ensure our work is informed by the voices of lived experience.
  • Collaboration: We will work collectively and collaboratively as a Women’s Aid movement, to bring about positive change.
  • Empowerment: We will encourage and enable women to take control of their lives, make safe positive choices, determine their own futures, and increase their self-belief.
  • Equity, diversity and inclusion: We are committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion. We will challenge discrimination where identified, internally and externally.
  • Best practice and quality standards: We are committed to quality standards, trauma informed practice, and continuous improvement.
  • Partnership: We recognise domestic abuse requires a collaborative response and are fully committed to working in partnership, with all relevant agencies to end domestic abuse.
