“They helped me to regain my confidence and rebuild my life.”
“When I came here my hands were empty…now they are full of happiness.”

Black Country Women’s Aid offers accommodation, practical and emotional support to women and children experiencing domestic and sexual violence, human trafficking and sexual exploitation.  We place victims’ voices at the heart of all we do, and our specialist team works with drive and passion to help people escape from violence and change their lives.

We manage two women's refuges in Sandwell which provide safe supportive environments to women and children escaping domestic abuse. Our Humdard service offers support specifically to South Asian women, specialising in issues of forced marriage and honour-based violence.

We offer support to victims of domestic abuse in the community in Sandwell, Dudley and Walsall.

In Sandwell, Dudley and Wolverhampton, we have a have a specialist rape and sexual violence service supporting and offering counselling to women, men and children who have suffered rape and sexual abuse.

Our specialist young people's team works with young people in and out of school to support victims and prevent growing rates of domestic abuse, sexual violence and sexual exploitation amongst young people.
