Womens Aid ABCLN
Who we are
Women’s Aid ABCLN is dedicated to providing refuge, support, information and training to women and children who are suffering abuse within the home, in the Ballymena, Antrim, Carrickfergus, Larne and Newtownabbey areas.
Domestic violence is the intentional and persistent physical or emotional abuse of a woman or of a woman and her children in a way that causes pain, distress or injury. Women’s Aid believe that domestic violence is a pattern of deliberate, intentional behaviour used to exercise control and power by one person over another, which may take place over a prolonged period of time.
