“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 (BCWA, formerly known as Sandwell Women’s Aid) is an independent charity which has been supporting victims of domestic abuse and sexual violence in the West Midlands for the last 30 years.

We offers sensitive and holistic support and refuge which help victims of domestic abuserape and sexual abuse, sexual exploitationmodern slavery and international human trafficking to escape from violence, cope with trauma and move on with their lives.

Over the years we have grown from a small refuge in Sandwell to a diverse organisation which supports over 9000 women, children and men across the West Midlands every year.

We believe that no-one should have to live in fear of violence and abuse. We listen, we support, we care… and we’re glad that you do too.

“You have really helped me get back on my feet even when I thought the world was crumbling. Thank you so much for being there for me and restoring my life”
