Who we are
Reigate and Banstead Women’s Aid (RBWA) comprises 3 refuges, based across Surrey, for women and children fleeing severe domestic abuse. The service provides accommodation and support to women and children over an average period of 6 months whilst resident at the refuge and for a further 3 months once the families have resettled in new accommodation. RBWA support 30 women and their children at any one time; there can be around 60 children living across the three sites.
The families that use the service will be the most high risk cases of domestic abuse and they are assessed as being at risk of murder if they were to remain in their homes.
The staff team is made up of specialist support workers who have an in depth understanding of the challenges facing the families and children’s support workers who have specialist knowledge of the challenges facing the children. The CEO is an Ambassador for the Women’s Aid Federation of England and is actively involved in campaigning for change, for survivors of abuse.
