Worthing Women's Aid was set up in 1977 to provide refuge accommodation for women and their children who were subjected to domestic abuse. Now with accommodation for up to 12 families, the refuges are a place where women and their children can feel safe and be given the vital support they need, both practical and emotional.
We re-launched as Safe in Sussex on 28th November 2013.
Safe in Sussex provides an escape route from violence and the chance to seek alternatives to a life of isolation, fear and danger.
Provision of refuge accommodation and support and therapeutic services for women and children escaping domestic abuse.
Provision of educational programmes in schools and peer support and recovery group work aimed at prevention, early intervention and recovery.
